Arrest Of Multiple Offender

Natchez National Historical Park

National Park News

On the evening of March 2nd, ranger John Hearne and field trainee ranger Tom Holmes (Independence NHP) were assisting Lee County officers at a traffic safety checkpoint on a county road that intersects with the parkway. One of the drivers – Jamie Hines, 30 – was selected for additional screening. Hines failed each of his sobriety tests, recording a .202 on a preliminary breath test. Holmes moved to arrest Hines for DUI, but Hines broke free as he was being handcuffed and fled. A foot chase ensued. Hines eventually found himself trapped in a deep excavation project next to the parkway. After a brief standoff, he surrendered to the rangers and county deputies, who took him into custody. Hines, who has an extensive criminal history, including several felonies and current warrants against him from other jurisdictions, is facing seven counts, ranging from DUI to failure to obey lawful orders. Given his previous history, Hines is still in custody of U.S. marshals. This was Holmes’s eleventh arrest since he has been training on the parkway.
