CARTER COUNTY, OK -- A man with warrants for aggravated assault and battery who is possibly armed and dangerous is still on the run Friday evening.

The Carter County Sheriff's office and Dickson police pulled over Ricky Forward Thursday morning for speeding.

He didn't have a valid driver's license so officers handcuffed him and put him in the back seat of a sheriff's cruiser.

Deputies say they found drugs in his car but as they searched, Forward escaped.

Forward is about 6 feet tall and around 125 pounds.

If you've seen him contact law enforcement immediately.
