Evansville Police say they arrested 19-year-old Thomas Bevinger after a foot chase Sunday afternoon.

EPD says Bevinger was wanted on a $25,000 Felony warrant for Receiving Stolen Property.

Police were called to an address in the 2500 block of Longworth Ct. because Bevinger was in the home causing problems.

Bevinger fled when officers arrived, but was pursued by an officer.

The officer chased Bevinger for several blocks until Bevinger's baggy shorts fell down to his ankles.

When he stopped to pull them back up, the officer was able to catch Bevinger and take him into custody. 

Bevinger was arrested for the warrant and for Resisting Law Enforcement.
