A dispatch call for a brush fire at the Dickinson Dike led to the Stark County Sheriff's Office and the Dickinson Police Department chasing a 27-year-old homeless man through that area of town for about an hour before he was arrested.

Alex Cockrell-who has a Keenesburg, Colo., address but told officers he homeless-fled the dike area shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday and attempted to evade officers through fields and streets before a Dickinson police officer caught up to him near the new State Avenue overpass bridge.

Cockrell was found to have six ounces of marijuana in a bag he was carrying and had a smoking pipe in his possession. He also had two outstanding warrants in both Stark and Billings counties. He was arrested for possession of marijuana and refusing to halt for an officer, both of which are Class B misdemeanors, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia and outstanding driving under suspension bench warrants.

He made his initial appearance in Southwest District Court on Wednesday.
