Cobb was given multiple commands to stop by multiple deputies and continued to flee until taken into
custody by Deputy Maximino Medina. During a search of Cobb’s person, suspected narcotics were
located. Cobb was uninjured during the foot chase however was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital

offenders a priority, especially those who deal narcotics such as methamphetamine in our community.

am thankful no one was injured in this incident.”
