Fugitive hits officer

A fugitive is in jail after he assaulted a policewoman.

A man who led officers on a chase in a stolen Porsche only to come back two weeks later and run from police on foot now faces more charges, this time for assaulting an officer who came to arrest him.
The suspect, Dalton Holton, 24, is charged with evading arrest, assault on an officer, violation of a bond condition and domestic assault. He will face preliminary hearing on February 3. Since it is his third run-in with the law within a month, his bonding company has asked for release from his bond meaning he may find himself stuck behind bars at least until his hearing date.
Holton’s issues with police began last month when he allegedly stole his girlfriend’s Porsche from her Spring Street residence. He led police on a short chase and was caught on nearby Lance Street.
The ink had barely dried on those warrants when he showed back up at his girlfriend’s house and assaulted her last week. He ran off when police arrived and was able to elude capture. He remained at-large until Sunday when he again showed up at his girlfriend’s Spring Street residence.
When police arrived, they found him inside. Police Sgt. Lisa Norris went to the front door while another officer guarded the back door to prevent him from escaping.
“I found his inside a back bedroom,” Sgt. Norris said, noting she took him by the wrists to handcuff him, telling him he was under arrest. “He said he wasn’t going anywhere and I told him there was another officer outside.”
Saying he didn’t care about the other officer, the six-foot, 180-pound Holton pulled away from the officer and forcefully hit her in the arms and chest before running out the front door.
“He took off into the neighborhood on foot,” Norris revealed. “He was arrest on Swann Street a few minutes alter at taser point.”
