Fleeing suspect found in Michigan leaf pile

HASTINGS, Mich. (AP) - November 9, 2011

The Grand Rapids Press reports that when the man was discovered concealed under leaves in a bush in Hastings, near Grand Rapids, he ran off again - and jumped into a river.

Police arrested the suspect after he went to a nearby motel to change his clothes. Officers found a backpack belonging to the man that contained waste from methamphetamine production and say he likely was making meth in the motel room.

The man is being held on a probation violation. He is expected to face drug charges.
