A parole violator trying to pass as a roofing contractor was arrested Wednesday.
Monroe police received a tip that a parole violator was in the Lansing, Michigan area and working as a roof contractor on a home on South Stony Creek Road in Frenchtown Township.
The man also had a felony warrant out for his arrest for delivery of marijuana.
When troopers arrived to the home, the man fled through a field and into a waist-deep creek.
Trooper Nick Kaiser, a former track and field athlete at the University of Tennessee, pursued the man and eventually took him into custody.
The 39-year-old suspect is being held at Monroe County Jail for an outstanding parole violation charge as well as resisting arrest.
