Man running from police caught by good Samaritans

The video also showed the man speeding near the MoDOT worker.

A Convicted felon fleeing from his father's house after a domestic dispute was caught and detained by good Samaritans Tuesday.

According to a post on the Franklin County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, 21-year-old Leslie Rector fled from his father's home on an ATV while carrying a shotgun after police were called. When officers arrived at the home on the 1000 block of Krenning Road, they found the property was extensively damaged and an ATV and shotgun were missing.

A short time later — as dash cam video recorded by the two good Samaritans showed — he nearly stuck a MoDOT worker, then hit construction cones before losing control of the ATV.

The truck with the dash cam followed the man, and when he crashed, the two men wrestled suspect to the ground tying him down with a strong construction tape.

Officers arrived and took him into custody. He is currently being charged with tampering with a motor vehicle, probation violation and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bond was set at $30,000.
