    Officials say Browne fled in a stolen truck in August, eventually crashing the vehicle through an airport fence. Police rammed the pickup truck alongside a busy runway and pulled Browne from the cab.

    According to online records, Browne remains in the Dallas County Jail on several charges related to the chase.

    Trey Bunch, Browne's attorney, did not immediately respond to a message.
