MT. VERNON -- Police say a man got into a fight at Applebee's then stole a car.

Around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, police say they received a report about Shonn Bacon fighting a group of women. Officers also say he was armed.  

Before they got there, officers believe Bacon got into another person's car, which was parked at the Arby's next door.

Officers tried stopping him but eventually, he got out of the car and ran away on foot. After a standoff, officers arrested him.

Bacon is on parole for a 2015 conviction and faces a handful of new charges.
