A Fulton man was apprehended early Friday morning after leading law enforcement on a short vehicular chase.
Lance D. Duider was arrested for second degree felony assault on law enforcement, felony resisting arrest, felony driving while intoxicated persistent offender, first degree trespassing, resisting arrest by flight and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
Officers with the Fulton Police Department had responded at 3:10 a.m. to a residence on Natalie Court for a trespassing in progress call. When they arrived at the scene, Duider was driving a red Dodge truck away from the location, jumping a curb and driving into a field.
According to a police report, Duider struck an object in the field and then attempted to hit a police officer with his truck before he finally was subdued by use of a Taser.
“(Duider) had driven around a pond and (the officer) had gotten out of his patrol car to walk around and tell the suspect to get out of his vehicle, when (Duider) backed up suddenly,” Maj. Roger Rice, FPD assistant chief, said Friday afternoon. “Had the officer not gotten out of the way, he would have been hurt.”
Duider was transported to the Callaway County Jail with a bond of $25,000.
