A Salina man with active warrants ended up in jail Tuesday morning after attempting to flee on a bicycle and on foot.
Salina Police Captain Gary Hanus said Wednesday that an officer was on patrol in the 200 block of East Pacific when he observed Drevin Simmons, 21, riding a bicycle. The officer recognized Simmons as having warrants from Saline County District Court and Salina Municipal Court, Hanus said.
