Multiple charges have been filed against Jason Michael Hurst, 33, of Neosho. Hurst was apprehended on Monday after he assaulted deputies who were serving a court ordered eviction notice at his residence located at 13305 Iris Road, Lot 14, in rural Neosho.
After Hurst was subdued and placed in a patrol vehicle, he managed to get the handcuffs in front of him. He got past the cage and stole the patrol vehicle. Deputies on scene gave pursuit as the individual drove toward Neosho in a dangerous, erratic manner.
After Hurst turned onto Neosho Boulevard in an area of congested traffic and nearing a school zone, deputies used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.
Hurst continued to fight deputies as he was subdued. After treatment at a local hospital, Hurst was taken into custody at the Newton County Sheriff's Department.
Charges filed against Hurst include escaped or attempted escape from custody, four count of assault in the 4th degree, special victims, tampering with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest by fleeing, creating substantial risk of serious death to any person.
Arraignment on all charges is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5 at 9 a.m. in Division II of Newton County Circuit Court, with Judge Stremel presiding.
