NAVARRO COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) A wanted man was facing a slew of charges Tuesday after Navarro County authorities say they found him in violation of a protective order at an area business.

Sheriff Elmer Tanner says detectives spotted the suspect Monday at a business in the Angus area.

When they approached him, he provided a fake name and ran away, Tanner said.

Officers caught up with the man and took him into custody after they say he tried to resist.

Upon further investigation, detectives discovered there was an active protective order against the man at the business.

Joseph Monroe Walker Jr., 28, was taken to the Navarro County Justice Center.

Walker was booked on seven charges including evading arrest or detention with a previous conviction, resisting arrest, failure to identify as a fugitive, violation of a protective order bias/prejudice, and three probation violation warrants for criminal trespassing, criminal mischief, and possession of marijuana.

He remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of bonds totaling $30,000.
