Deputies said they stopped a truck that was reported stolen and found a man was being held in the back of the truck.
Henderson County deputies said they were called about 11:30 p.m. Sunday to Georgia Guice Road off of Jackson Loop Road after a 2004 Gray Dodge Ram pickup was reported stolen, and as they were approaching, they saw a man in the back of the truck waving his hands and yelling for help.
Deputies pulled the truck over and took two suspects into custody.
Once they spoke with the victim in the back of the truck, he told deputies that as the truck was being stolen, he was hit by it so he grabbed hold of the tailgate and jumped into the back of the truck.
