A Spencer man is wanted after he skipped his hearing date for leading lawmen on a foot chase which ended with him being tased for resisting arrest.
The suspect, Derrick Sullivan, 36, has been ordered to be jailed on $15,000 bond once he is caught for no-showing his hearing in General Sessions Court this past Tuesday.
He stands charged with assault, vandalism, criminal trespass and evading arrest. He was spotted by McMinnville Police Sgt. Ben Cantrell who noticed the window tint was too dark on his Ford Explorer. The officer stopped him.
“As I exited my patrol unit, the front-seat passenger jumped out and ran away from the scene of the traffic stop,” the sergeant reported. “I ordered him to stop, but he refused and continued running.”
Cantrell called for backup and was joined by several other officers.
“He was spotted about 600 yards away from the scene of the traffic stop by officer Chris Odom and refused the officer’s orders and was tased,” Cantrell said.
Officers later found out there were three outstanding warrants against him from Bledsoe County.
