WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The McLennan County Constable’s Office is searching for a 47-year-old who led police on a manhunt Monday afternoon.

The incident started after authorities said Ronnie Earl Rhodes from Waco ran a red light downtown near I-35.

Officials said the Rhodes now has outstanding warrants for evading arrest and false identification.

When Rhodes was initially pulled over at an Exxon gas station near I-35, he gave the name and date of birth of a man in his 20s. That man had a felony warrant out of Houston for larceny.

A constable said they didn’t believe Rhodes, who didn’t have an ID at the time, matched the personal information he provided authorities with.

After authorities told him he was under arrest for that warrant, he left in his car.

Several law enforcement authorities chased him and a helicopter flying back from an unrelated mission helped with the search.

Rhodes who would’ve had only a ticket for running a red light, now faces two misdemeanor charges for evading arrest and false identification.

Authorities are actively searching for Rhodes and asks anyone with information to call the Constable’s Office Precinct 1 office, Crime Stoppers or 911.
