After 11 Years On The Run NC Suspect Captured In Texas (Rockwall)

ROCKWALL (CBSDFW.COM) – If you mention Jack Allen Poteat or John Phillips you’re talking about the same man. And after years of being on the run, carrying multiple identities and different looks, he was nabbed in North Texas.

For the past 11 years, Poteat’s been dodging rape charges out of North Carolina. But he also was wanted for criminal activity in other states. In addition to North Carolina, police in Alabama, Georgia and here in Texas have been chasing him.

Poteat’s freedom ended Tuesday in Rockwall. His life began spiraling downward after an appearance on prime-time TV and ended with a crashed car in a field.
