May 29th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

Except for reportedly leaving police a map to where he was going and seeking refuge at a home where there was a protective mother with a 9 mm gun, Brian Keith Rummage has this fugitive thing figured out.

According to a Knoxville News Sentinel report, Rummage, 19, who walked away from a work release program in Lawrence County on April 6 and is thought to have been in possession of a vehicle stolen in Maury County within the past few days, was arrested Thursday morning in Maryville as a friend's mother held him at gunpoint.

Officers of the Blount County Sheriff's Office and the Maryville Police Department converged on a home on Dockery Drive about 9:30 a.m. after getting a report that a man wanted in Maury County was being detained at gunpoint.

Rummage, of Lawrenceburg, Tenn., was arrested there without incident.
