After evading arrest for a day and a half, a fugitive is arrested in a rural neighborhood near Bozeman.

Police say the suspect, Shaunesy Cole, fled arrest after being pulled over for suspected DUI in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They believed him to be armed and dangerous and on the loose in the Quinn Creek neighborhood near Bozeman Pass. Searchers combed a search radius of more than 10 miles.

On Thursday afternoon, a K-9 unit helped track down Cole after a woman reported that he tried to break into her house. Officers say Cole ran away when he saw police, and the dogs pursued him.

Officers said the K-9 unit did bite Cole during his arrest. The extent of his injuries is unknown.

More than 100 officers joined the search in the last day. The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office also sent searchers in with an armored vehicle.

Cole will be evaluated at a hospital and initially booked into the Park County jail in Livingston.
