A Decatur County man being sought for burglary and other charges made a Hollywood-style jump from a third-story balcony in Columbus with police on his trail.

But unlike most movie scenarios, Zachary A. Venable, 23, of 805 W. Eighth St., Greensburg, suffered serious injuries as a result of last weekend's incident at a motel near Jonathan Moore Pike and Carr Hill Road.

Venable was being sought on a Shelby County warrant for charges including burglary, possession of stolen property, illegal residential entry and receiving stolen property.
