Former Georgia Tech football player Reuben Houston has been evading federal marshals since September. According to inspector Katrina Crouse, Houston apparently barged in to a home with a gun threatening the people inside it after an alleged incident involving Houston's daughter.
He held that family at gunpoint for a few minutes until one of the members of the family inside tried to wrestle the gun away from Houston. He, then, left the house and has been on the run ever since.
Houston is now wanted for "making terroristic threats" and "aggravated assault with a weapon." Five years ago, he was arrested for his involvement in distributing and attempting to sell $60,000 worth of marijuana in and around the Georgia Tech campus. He was sentenced to nine months probation as part of the plea deal presented, and the university was forced, by a judge's order, to let him continue to compete on the football team back then.
He is considered armed and dangerous by the feds who think he may be in the state of Florida because of his past relationships in the state.
