CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A desperate search for a fugitive spanned several Charlotte city blocks Thursday afternoon. "We had a federal fugitive who we had been looking at for a while," said U.S. Marshal O. Hamilton.Marshals located Montez Gaddy, 29, in a neighborhood near Druid Circle and Statesville Avenue. They tried to pull him over, he took off. A chase ensued around North Charlotte. One deputy crashed into a tractor-trailer on Statesville Road trying to catch the suspect. "I saw the police car come flying through the street," witness Demetrius Wallace said. "And it couldn't stop in time, just hit the truck."

Gaddy had run into a home on Woodstone Drive and stayed there for more than an hour. Police surrounded the home with guns drawn. A woman who told Channel 9 she was the suspect's girlfriend said she helped talk him out of the house. "He don't know what's going on, but there's a million police out here, and he was scared they were going to hurt him," she said. But she says she was also scared in the tense situation. Ultimately, Gaddy did surrender. He and another man were handcuffed and taken into custody. Gaddy had outstanding federal and state charges including a parole violation, gun possession by a felon, reckless driving, resisting arrest, and carrying a concealed weapon.
