A man who allegedly used dangerous tactics to evade police in November was investigated for nearly two months until finally being arrested on Thursday, Jan. 10.
In mid-November, Prescott Valley Police Department (PVPD) officers tried pulling over a vehicle traveling on Glassford Hill Road at excessive speed. The vehicle fled from officers at extreme speeds and nearly caused several accidents, PVPD reported.
During the chase, a passenger jumped from the fleeing vehicle at the intersection of Granville Parkway and Tuscany Way and was arrested.
When officers attempted to block the vehicle from entering Glassford Hill Road, its driver evaded the blockade in such a dangerous way that officers discontinued the pursuit, PVPD reported.
The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Joseph David Henson, who had a valid Arizona Department of Corrections parole violation warrant. Officers and detectives continued to investigate the incident until Henson was located and arrested by the Chino Valley Police Department.
Henson was booked into the Yavapai County jail on the parole violation warrant, unlawful flight and endangerment charges.
