JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Johnson City police arrested a man they say ran while they were investigating him.

Investigators tell News 5 they handcuffed Fairley while looking into a vehicle they suspected had just been involved in a crack cocaine deal.

Police tell us as they searched the car, Fairley ran away from them but he was caught shortly after. Investigators say they also found crack cocaine hidden on Fairley after the pursuit.

Fairley is charged with possession of crack cocaine for resale and escape.
