Philipsburg, PA – A man is facing charges after he allegedly lied to and fled from police earlier this month.

35-year-old Thomas Golding was the passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over in Philipsburg on July 21.

Police say they asked for his information, but Golding allegedly gave the officer a fake name and then ran on foot. The state trooper caught Golding shortly after.

Golding had a warrant for his arrest for a parole violation. Now he’ll face more charges for fleeing from police, in addition to his original parole charges.
