One man is behind bars in Harrison County after running from police Saturday afternoon. 

According to the Biloxi Police Department, 31-year-old Jerrad Andre Houston led police on a chase down Beach Boulevard after refusing to stop following "several traffic infractions". Houston jumped out of the car near Edgewater Mall and ran away. 

After being caught a short time later, police learned that Houston had multiple prior felony drug offenses in Milwaukee. Officers found two guns, one inside the vehicle and another in the road nearby. 

Houston was charged with felony eluding and two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He received a $100,000 bond for each charge.
