Man Accused Of Battering Officers Captured

Posted Friday, May 25, 2012 --- 1:15 p.m.

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- A fugitive from Michigan who vowed he would do anything in his power to avoid capture has been arrested in southern Wisconsin.

Police say Eugene Marr was taken into custody after struggling with officers in Racine. Authorities say three officers were injured as they tried to subdue Marr and eventually used a stun gun to take him into custody Wednesday night.

Marr is wanted for at least 16 felony charges from Kalamazoo, Mich. Officers there attempted to pull his SUV over in February, but dash cam video shows him speeding away by driving over a curb as officers tried to pull him from the vehicle. As Marr drove off, one of the officers was tossed into a squad car.
