WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - A Wichita Falls man was arrested on Sunday for evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle following a vehicle and foot pursuit with police.
According to the arrest affidavit, around 3:15 p.m. an officer saw a vehicle with an expired temporary tag. When the officer activated the overhead emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop, the vehicle pulled into a driveway in the 1600 block of Harrison Street.
The officer made contact with Jazmon Jones, 31, who was driving the vehicle and was the only person inside. According to the affidavit, the officer could smell marijuana coming from the vehicle.
When the officer asked Jones to step outside of the vehicle, he refused. The officer then told Jones to step outside of the vehicle and said Jones turned in his seat and shut the driver's door.
The officer said Jones put his vehicle in drive and drove around the rear of the residence and out to the alley. Jones is accused of turning west on Avenue H and then south on Giddings Street, according to police.
Another officer said Jones crashed into a parked car and took off running in the 1800 block of Giddings. Jones ran through an alley and into a home on the 1900 block of Britain Street.
The homeowner said Jones came in through the backdoor and the homeowner yelled at Jones to get out. Jones ran out of the back of this residence and took off south into another home on the same block.
This homeowner told officers Jones walked into the residence and was inside hiding. The homeowner said they did not know who Jones was. Jones was found and taken into custody.
A record check showed his driver's license had been expired since August 2010 due to an active suspension for Revoked Non-Resident Violator Compact (NRVC) that began in April 2009.
Jones was booked into the Wichita Co. Jail for evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle. As of Thursday afternoon, Jones was no longer behind bars in Wichita Co.
