COLUMBUS, Ga. — A man who police say fled from officers Tuesday night was shot twice by a patrolman when he refused to obey his commands.

Timothy Pugh, 30, of 1410 Talbotton Road, was hit in the arm and the shoulder by Columbus Police Officer Michael Doolittle just after 10 p.m. behind a Sheffield Drive apartment complex, Chief Rickey Boren said. The shooting came after Pugh jumped from his moving Crown Victoria and ran from police following a brief car chase down Macon and Forrest roads.
