Matthew C. Zahn is charged with two counts of evading arrest.
A man who couldn’t be stopped may end up parked at Warren County Jail after he evaded police on two occasions.The fugitive, Matthew C. Zahn, 23, is charged with two counts of evading arrest for the separate incidents and is also charged with second-offense driving on a suspended license.McMinnville policeman Chris Odom tried to pull over his 2012 Chevy Camaro in the old Captain D’s parking lot.“Once he was in the parking lot he immediately accelerated and nearly lost control, turning sideways as he left on Northgate Drive at a high rate of speed,” the policeman said.The suspect reportedly then passed a motorist on a double yellow line before turning onto Clark Boulevard where he blew past West Elementary at a high speed. The policeman said the incident happened around 3:40 p.m., but there were still children present on campus. The officer called off the pursuit given the danger to the public.Just two days later, Zahn was again running from the law, this time outrunning police who tried to pull him over on North Chancery Street.“He was traveling at a high rate of speed and about hit two vehicles,” Police Lt. Bill Davis recalled, noting he also terminated his pursuit due to danger to the public.Zahn was later taken into custody.
