CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KYTX) -- Deputies arrested a man on New Years Eve who had been on the run from East Texas for nearly a month.

26-year-old Curtis Simmons allegedly fled from Jacksonville police officers following a traffic stop for speeding on January 10th. Investigators say it was another traffic infraction that led to him being stopped near Lake Charles, LA and taken into custody.

Simmons has been released from the Calcasieu Parish correctional center. Jailers there tell CBS 19 he's being transported back to East Texas for prosecution.
