Posted: Updated:

The Walton County Sheriff's Office arrested Douglas Alfred Dunnigan, 32, of Santa Rosa Beach, FL this afternoon. 

Bail Bondsman Mark Harris requested assistance from the Sheriff's Office after he attempted to serve Dunnigan for a warrant on a failure to appear charge of DWLSR. 

Dunnigan immediately fled on foot.  Deputies located and attempted to arrest Dunnigan where he then fled on foot again for several blocks. 

K9 was deployed and tracked Dunnigan where he was finally apprehended at Chat Holley and 16th Street. 

Corporal Will Curtis sustained injury to his leg during the chase and was treated and released from Sacred Heart Hospital.

Dunnigan was taken into custody and is now booked at the Walton County Jail.  In addition to the warrant, Dunnigan is also being charged with resisting arrest without violence.
