FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

A teenager who escaped from state custody last week is still on the run.

Authorities were moving Jeremy Michael Fowler, 18, Friday night when he jumped out of a vehicle near Goose Creek Drive near Thompson's Station, TN.

Fowler was in the process of being moved from the Williamson County Detention Center to a facility in Bedford County.

The Williamson County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday added Fowler to its Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Fowler's mother, Kim Weber, said she doubts her son was shackled, despite claims by the Department of Children's Services.

Weber admits her son has had brushes with the law since he was 13. She said while in DCS custody he also failed a drug test.  

Fowler said her son didn't want to languish in a DCS facility and blames the juvenile judge for prompting her son's escape.

Fowler, who has two children, is described as 5'11" tall and weighs 180 pounds. His last known address was on Spring Street in Franklin.
