A Greeneville man fled from deputies on Monday.

32-year-old Joshua Smelcer of Fodderstack Mountain Loop saw deputies come to a residence he was at as he was walking out the front door. Smelcer turned around and went inside.

A deputy followed him into the home and told him to stop and another deputy went around the residence. Smelcer exited through a side door and reportedly fled into the woods, where he was apprehended.

Smelcer is charged with evading arrest and is scheduled to appear in court this morning.
