Biloxi Police started chasing Michael Wilson, 31, Saturday morning after spotting him driving a stolen Mitsubishi from Jackson County. Police say after Wilson was spotted, he ran from officers through the streets and into Keegan Bayou, where he was captured.

Biloxi Police later learned that Wilson is wanted on escape charges. George County Sheriff's Department officials say he walked away from a work center.

There is also a warrant out for Wilson's arrest in Ocean Springs for strong armed robbery. Biloxi Police will charge him with various traffic offenses.
