Shawnee County prosecutors expect to file charges Thursday against a Douglas County man who was arrested Tuesday after a high-speed chase that spanned parts of Shawnee and Douglas counties.

The 48-year-old rural Overbrook man was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon near his home, which is southwest of Clinton Lake. He allegedly led Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and officers with other agencies on a 30-minute chase from Topeka into Douglas County.

Dakota Loomis, a deputy chief of staff in the Shawnee County district attorney’s office, said the suspect is being held in Shawnee County on an arrest report for fleeing or eluding police and numerous traffic violations. Loomis said prosecutors have until Friday afternoon to file official charges in the case.

The Journal-World typically does not name criminal case suspects before charges have been filed.

Actually, Overbrook is Osage, Douglas, and Shawnee. He lives right around the corner from where he caught stopped(Twinmounds). Maybe he had to go #2 real bad. I got to see the new police Chargers drive down a gravel road. I bet that got them real mad.
