CUMMING, Ga. — A man missed his court date and ran into people’s homes because he thought deputies were searching for him, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.
On Sept. 10, Joshua Bush, 24, drove with his brother down Ga. 400 and saw a patrol car traveling behind them.
Bush said he missed his morning court date and knew there would be a bench warrant taken out on him.
He told his brother to pull over, so that he could get out and avoid police. Deputies said Bush was not being pursued by law enforcement at the time, but he thought he was.
Bush ran through the woods and stopped at a home in the 3000 block of Keith Bridge Road.
Bush knocked on the front door and no one answered. He opened the door and an elderly woman came downstairs.
Bush said he was looking for “Cynthia” and the woman said he must have the wrong address. Later, the woman called 911.
Bush went next door and entered the home. Another woman was in her kitchen and asked Bush what he was doing inside her home.
Bush again said he was looking for “Cynthia,” and the woman said she didn’t know anyone by that name.
When Bush left the home, deputies were outside and handcuffed him.
Bush was taken to Forsyth County Detention Center and charged with two counts of criminal trespass, misdemeanors.
