    Timothy Davenport

    A man accused of burglary was caught Wednesday afternoon when he tried to flee the scene in a getaway vehicle with two police officers inside, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Timothy Davenport, a 23-year-old man on parole from a burglary conviction in 2008, attempted to drive away from a home on the 1600 block of North Winchester Avenue after a resident allegedly found him and another man in the kitchen.

    Davenport reportedly started to drive as one officer was hanging from the driver's side door and the other was in a back seat. One officer used a Taser to try to subdue Davenport but he fought back, according to the Tribune.

    Davenport then stopped the vehicle and got out. The officers pursued him on foot and eventually caught him, but the second suspect got away.

    Davenport is charged with multiple counts of aggravated battery to a police officer, residential burglary, resisting a police officer and reckless conduct, the report says.
