Rancho Brazos man missed tornado after May 9 arrest

Charles Alvin Youngblood, 58, of the 3700 block of Canyon Road in the Rancho Brazos subdivision, missed the May 15 tornado in that area because he was in the Hood County Jail. He was arrested May 9 by a Granbury Police Department officer after a 911 call reporting a suspicious person in the 1400 block of Highway 377. Officers determined that Youngblood was a danger to himself or others, GPD Deputy Chief Hines said, but when they were escorting him to a patrol car he fled on foot before being caught just a few feet away. Because of a previous conviction, Youngblood was charged with felony evading arrest or detention, Hines said.
