The Spencer Police Department were called to a gas drive off at Dyno's in north Spencer, around 1:42 this (Monday) morning, resulting in a pursuit, which also involved the Clay County Sheriffs Department.
After the drive off, the suspect vehicle was located a short time later, at West 18th Street and 4th Avenue West. As the officer attempted to pull the vehicle over, the vehicle fled, and and continued north on 4th Avenue West, and then the driver lost control of the vehicle in the 2100 block.
After going into the ditch, the vehicle then drove back out, trying to collide with the Police vehicle, then continuing south on 4th Avenue West. An attempt to drive through a yard failed, then in backing out, the vehicle collided with a Police vehicle.
The suspect car was eventually dumped in the 100 block of 6th Street, and the driver and a passenger fled the vehicle, being pursued on foot by officers. Both were eventually captured, but during the pursuit, an officer was injured falling onto a railroad tie.
During the capture, a taser was used on the driver, 43-year old Gregory Roush, whose last address was Minnesota. The female passenger, 28-year old Jamie Hayes, whose address is unknown, was taken into custody without further incident.
Roush was charged with Felony Eluding, OWI, 5th Degree Theft, Reckless Driving, and Criminal trespass, and other charges. Hayes was charged with Public Intoxication and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Both were taken to the County Jail.
