Bramlett Road Suspect Wanted by HCSO


Thomas Hughes

Deputies were called to 8903 Bramlett Road today at approximately 12:00 p.m. after receiving a report of a stolen vehicle could be found at that address. On arrival at the residence, deputies located an individual identified as Thomas Hughes. When he noticed the deputies he entered the vehicle he had been working on in an effort to flee the scene. Hughes ignored commands to stop the vehicle but he recklessly and purposely maneuvered the vehicle in their direction. Two deputies had to take quick and evasive actions to avoid being struck by the vehicle and one fired his weapon due to the fear of being struck.

Hughes fled the scene but the vehicle was located a short time later with information he continued to flee on foot into a wooded area. The vehicle Hughes fled the scene in was found to be stolen along with another vehicle located at the Bramlett Road address.

Warrants have been obtained for Thomas Hughes charging him with Aggravated Assault and Reckless Endangerment with a Weapon. Investigation continues.
