With a name like Champion, you’d think he’d be better at hide-and-seek.

According to KWTX, 30-year-old Dakota Champion of Copperas Cove was arrested Sunday afternoon after leading Killeen police on a foot chase that ended on Fort Hood.

Police say they warned area pawn shops that Champion was suspected of selling stolen goods. When he showed up at a shop on Fort Hood Street around 3 PM Sunday, an employee called police.

When officers arrived, Champion was outside the shop testing a lawn mower. When he spotted the responding officers, he fled on foot toward Old FM 440. He was later seen jumping a fence into Fort Hood’s Venable Village.

After about half an hour of hiding, Champion was sniffed out by a K-9 unit and taken into custody.

Records indicate he was booked into the Bell County Jail at 2:29 PM Monday and charged with Burglary of a Habitation and Evading Arrest. His bond was set at $50,000, and he remained in the Bell County Jail Tuesday morning.
