Capt. Derek Walrod of the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department said Tyler G. Havens, 19, was arrested in Bates County, where he was wanted for alleged probation violations.
Havens allegedly hit and shoved a detective who went to a home on Clearbrook Lane to question him Wednesday in an identity-theft case. He then ran, prompting a search involving a police dog and a helicopter.
Walrod said he did not know the time and circumstances of Havens’ capture in Bates County. He said all he knew is that Havens was being held there on Bates County warrants. The Jasper County Sheriff’s Department was seeking charges against him for assault on an officer, child endangerment and resisting arrest, but the lone charge that had been filed by the county prosecutor’s office by late Friday afternoon was a misdemeanor offense of resisting arrest.
