Man arrested after leading police on short chase

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, TN (WRCB) -

A McMinn County man has landed himself in handcuffs after reportedly jumping out of a moving car, then trying to hide from police in the woods.

Thirty-three-year-old Sean Huff was arrested on drug charges and evading arrest.  Police found him in the woods after they say he'd run from his car.

But he insisted he had quote "just been sitting in the woods and had not been driving a car."

Police say in the leaves beside him was a small bag containing suspected meth and two other empty bags with a white, powdery residue inside.

Huff's bond has been set at 85-hundred dollars.
