The charges stem from an incident in August when officers on patrol in Enon made a traffic stop on a car in which Tomlin was a passenger. According to a police report, Tomlin allegedly gave a false name and date of birth, later admitting to it because he believed he had a warrant out for his arrest. As the officer moved to arrest Tomlin, Tomlin allegedly fled on foot through Enon Cemetery and into a residential neighborhood on Dayton Road.
According to the report, the officer ran after him but later returned to his cruiser to catch up to Tomlin. Tomlin then allegedly stole a bicycle from a home and continued to elude capture. The suspect allegedly attempted to get back into the car he was originally riding in but ran when the officer drew his service weapon, the report says.
