HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The man who allegedly ran over his father during an altercation in northwest Harris County has been captured in Jackson, Mississippi.

Devon Amos was arrested by the Gulf Coast U.S. Marshal Service Task Force on Wednesday.

On April 27, authorities say Cedric Amos was run over with a vehicle driven by his son outside a YMCA on Cypresswood.

Gonzalez said Devon fled the scene after the incident. The car he was driving was abandoned near FM 1960 and Highway 249, but was later found.

Devon has been charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

Cedrick remains in the hospital with serious injuries.
