| by Michael Allen

In Jackson, Mississippi, fugitive Rodney Wayne Hill was arrested while giving WLBT-Channel 3 newsman Bert Case an impromptu interview (video below).

Case, who was outside the fugitive's house filing a report, was approached by HIll who said he needed help.

Case recalled: “Never in my 48 year career has this happened to me before! The guy just walked over that hill right there, threw his hands up in the air…he came down and started talking to me!”

Once the news crew realized Hill was the subject of a police manhunt, a cameraman called 911 while Case stalled the fugitive.

“I realized what I had to do – keep him talking until deputies got to the scene,” Case added.
