A 28-year-old Missouri man faces a raft of felony counts including methamphetamine possession and assaulting a law enforcement officer in the first degree after allegedly leading a Livingston County Sheriff's Office deputy on a high-speed chase and then pointing a loaded handgun at him on the afternoon of July 13. The man is being held without bond at the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail and could also face federal charges according to media reports.

A LCSO deputy claims that the man fled the scene at speeds of up to 100 mph when he attempted to pull his motorcycle over in western Livingston County at approximately 4:20 p.m. The deputy says that he initiated the traffic stop because he believed that the man was a felony fugitive. The chase became a foot pursuit a short time later when the man lost control of his motorcycle near a church on U.S. Route 36 in Mooresville.

As the man was fleeing on foot, he allegedly pointed a plastic bag at the deputy that may have contained a firearm, but he threw the bag into some nearby bushes when the deputy drew his sidearm. The man was taken into custody a short time later according to media reports. A subsequent search of the area is said to have led to the discovery of a plastic bag containing items including a loaded 357-caliber handgun, an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine and a set of digital scales.

Experienced criminal defense attorneys may advise their clients to resist the urge to flee from law enforcement even when they are likely to be charged with serious drug crimes. Attempts to elude police are rarely successful and will usually lead to additional charges. This kind of behavior could also make mounting an effective defense or securing a favorable plea agreement far more difficult.
