An Osage Beach man accused of leading Camden County Sheriff’s Deputies on a chase is facing numerous charges.
The Camden County Sheriff’s Office says deputies tried to pull the car over, but it wouldn’t stop.
“The biggest indicators for why we believed the vehicle’s driver was intoxicated, was because the vehicle was driving down the middle lane, the turn lane, during the pursuit and the driver was hitting curbs and such.”
Captain Chris Twitchel says deputies learned more after the car stopped in the parking lot of WalMart in Osage Beach.
“We conducted our investigation and learned the driver was intoxicated, we also searched the vehicle and found a controlled substance that was field tested and later reviled to be cocaine.”
Captain Twitchel says 35-year-old David Evans of Osage Beach was arrested and is now in the Camden County Jail on no bond.
