Officers had to use Tasers to help arrest a suspect who led them on a short chase early Saturday morning in Eudora.
The 19-year-old Leawood resident was traveling faster than 90 mph on Kansas Highway 10, said Eudora Police Chief Greg Dahlem. About two miles later, police pulled the vehicle over, and the suspect ran away.
The suspect was not cooperating, and he jumped onto a patrol car, said Lt. Kari Wempe, a Douglas County Sheriff spokeswoman. A sheriff's officer used a Taser, which did not seem to affect him, and a Lawrence police officer then used a Taser on the man, who was then taken into custody.
The suspect suffered no injuries but was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital to be checked, Wempe said. He was booked into the Douglas County Jail at 3 a.m. on charges of battery of an officer, criminal damage, possession of depressants, stimulants or hallucinogens and drug paraphernalia, DWI, obstruction, fleeing and attempting to elude police and reckless driving.
The man is free on $3,000 bond, and the Douglas County District Attorney's office is still gathering information about filing formal charges.
