“An individual was running through the restaurant and running through the parking lot where he was acting very crazy.” Chief Parrish said.  “Making everybody uncomfortable they ended up locking the place down when he left, ” Chief Parrish said. 

Osborne continued the madness. He crossed the street again and ended up at the Flying J. He was spotted by officers inside the Denny’s.

Moments later the officers tracked his steps where they recovered his truck.

“We recovered numerous empty bags inside of his truck that tested positive of cocaine.”

Later, the man was transported to Southeast Health where he later died.
