A call of a suspicious person led to the arrest of a Rochester man in Cass County.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 4000 block of State Road 17 early Saturday morning. Deputies found Kristopher Long next to a vehicle in a driveway. Long explained that he ran out of gas and knocked on a door of a home for help.
Long fled from officers when it was revealed the GMC he was driving was reported stolen from Fulton County on October 15. He was found and arrested a short time later after fighting officers while they attempted to subdue him.
Long was booked into the Cass County Jail on charges of auto theft, two counts each of disarming law enforcement and battery resulting in bodily injury to a public safety official.
He’s also charged with resisting law enforcement, disorderly conduct and possession of meth.
