A 44-year-old Marble Falls man led police on a wild foot chase across US 281 that ended in the use of a Taser.

Police said Stanley Bernard Abney was caught in the act of stealing a truck and then ran across the highway during morning traffic, tossed a knife at officers and was finally subdued by a Taser at 8 a.m. Monday morning.

Abney was arrested on charges of public intoxication, aggravated assault against a public servant, evading arrest with previous convictions, criminal mischief and failure to identify/fugitive from justice and booked into the Burnet County Jail at 8:23 a.m. Monday. He remains in jail as of Tuesday morning, and bond has not yet been set.

Marble Falls Capt. Glenn Hanson said officers were called to the 2000 block of US 281, where a suspect was reportedly attempting to break into a truck that had been left for sale in the Lakeside Pawn & Jewelry parking lot.
