A 27-year-old man from Shawnee Mission, Kansas, is free on bond after an alleged assault and leading deputies on a foot pursuit before trying to take refuge in a nearby bar. That’s according to the probable cause statement filed in the Camden County Courthouse which reports that an unidentified man was discovered nearby bleeding from his face. The man provided a description of the suspect, identified as Kelvin Sierra, who was located a short time later before leading other deputies on the foot pursuit which came to an end inside Shady Gators. The victim declined to press charges stating to the deputy that he would not answer any questions because he was on
probation for a felony drug charge. Further investigation at the scene determined Sierra had also been wanted for failing to appear in Johnson County. Sierra was taken to the Camden County and has, since, been charged with resisting arrest.
