After leading police on a merry three-day chase, a fugitive shooting suspect in Arkansas was caught wearing the perfect T-shirt. Emblazoned on the front of his black shirt were the words “You can run, but you can’t hide,” and while he did manage to run for three days, he’s now in custody.
Arkansas seems to be the ironic news state right now, as the Inquisitr earlier today reported on the story of a man caught in front of a Kum & Go supermarket and gas station pleasuring himself in public. It seems he took the name of the store a tad too literally.
Now, we have the story of a man wearing a prophetic “You can run, but you can’t hide” T-shirt in the same state.
According to police, Tieren Watson was wanted in the shooting at a Little Rock motel Tuesday that left a woman in a serious condition in the town of Benton, Arkansas.

ArkansasOnline quoted the police statement that said 26-year-old Watson of Little Rock got into an argument with the woman Saturday night that got out of hand, ending in a shooting.
Watson was finally tracked down at the America’s Best Inn shortly before 10 p.m. wearing the Nike T-shirt emblazoned with the words, “You can run, but you can’t hide.”
According to Benton Police Department spokesman, Lt. Kevin Russell, “That’s what it said and that’s what he was wearing.”
“And yeah, he was hiding out there. But thankfully to all the partners we worked with, we were able to apprehend him.”
Russell added that Watson’s fashion choice was “ironic indeed.”
According to police, Watson was arguing with another person when he “started firing off rounds from a pistol resulting in one of them hitting a woman who was also there.”

The woman, who has not yet been identified, remains in a serious condition in hospital.
According to NBC News, Watson, wearing his prophetic “You can run, but you can’t hide” T-shirt, was being held on Wednesday in the Saline County jail on a total of 10 counts. According to court records, these charges included first-degree battery, endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of a firearm by a felon, and aggravated assault.
It all goes to show that what you wear can quite literally reflect your being, especially for a criminal with a “You can run, but you can’t hide” T-shirt.
