LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - The Limestone County Sheriff's Department has released body cam video of the moments before a man fled from deputies following a traffic stop. Tony Glover's escape, which happened on Tuesday, led to a manhunt and Glover's eventual capture on Wednesday morning.

In the video, a Limestone County deputy attempts to serve an arrest warrant to Glover. The man questions the deputy about the warrant for a few minutes and, as the deputy is about to take him into custody, bolts from the side of the car and over a fence. The deputy pursues Glover who, after a brief struggle, is able to break free and escape into the woods.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office and the Ardmore Police Department set up a perimeter around the area and recruited the Limestone Prisons K9 unit and Limestone County Sheriff's Office helicopter to assist in the search throughout the night.

Glover was spotted entering a trailer on Leaning Pine Road by a resident of the area around 7 a.m. Wednesday. He was arrested a short time later and is in custody at the Limestone County Jail on four active warrants with no bond.
