Two men were arrested in Lawrence County on Wednesday for public intoxication and criminal trespassing following a collision in Wolf Springs that afternoon, according to authorities.
Antonio Kyvion Goodloe, 21 of Tuscumbia, and Matthew Jacob Butler, 20 of Russellville, were charged with third-degree criminal trespassing, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and attempting to elude police.
Butler was also charged with giving a false name to police.
The arrests came after reports were received of a vehicle collision on County Road 236 in the Wolf Springs Community Wednesday afternoon.
A vehicle left the roadway then struck and damaged a power pole, according to a report from the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office. Alabama State Troopers were called to investigate the scene.
Witnesses to the incident said two male occupants were seen leaving on foot after the crash, the report states.
The Sheriff’s Office was notified of two men matching the description of the suspects walking in a nearby community. After a deputy made contact with one of the suspects, later identified as Goodloe, the deputy attempted to take the man into custody, but he resisted and fled on foot.
After his capture, Sheriff’s Officials requested assistance from the Moulton Police Department, and the second suspect was found in a nearby field.
“The subject initially gave officers a false name and identifying information,” the report states. He was later identified as Matthew Butler.
The two were taken to the Lawrence County Jail. Goodloe is being held with an $11,000 bond, and Butler is being held on a $15,000 bond.
