Handcuffed suspect eludes Crawford deputies for hours
News


An overnight chase late Sunday in Crawford County started with a traffic stop for a problem with a taillight and ended up with a suspect getting arrested near a high school.

According to the Crawford sheriff's office, Joshua Ryan Chambley, who's 25, was a passenger in the car and was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

A deputy says he lied about his name and age, but they learned who he was, and arrested and cuffed him.

That's when he managed to jerk away and run into some woods, according to a sheriff's office news release.

After a search that lasted all night, deputies found Chambley just before 8 a.m. Monnday near Crawford County HIgh School, still handcuffed.

He faces several charges, including obstructing law enforcement officers, escape, and giving false information.
