ELDON – An Eldon man was arrested Feb. 25 after leading deputies on a chase.
Wapello County sheriff's investigator Aaron McConnell said a deputy attempted to stop a man later identified by deputies as 25-year-old Christopher Denham for a traffic violation of driving without a license plate on the morning of Feb. 25, but Denham refused to stop. Riding a dirt bike, Denham eluded law enforcement for a few miles before taking his bike off road.
Wapello County deputies set up a perimeter around the area Denham was last seen and eventually arrested him.
Denham was charged with eluding law enforcement, a serious misdemeanor, and driving while barred, an aggravated misdemeanor.
