The deputy reported Evans failed to stop and began to flee by continuing to drive south bound. During the pursuit, an air unit responded and the vehicle was finally located. All the vehicle’s air bags appeared to have been deployed and Evans was not in the car, according to the report.

Evans was eventually located and placed under arrest. A search of the vehicle revealed methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy) in the car along with oxycodone, the report stated.

Damage to a home fence where Evans crashed the car was estimated at $750, according to the report.

Evans was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail with a bond set at $5,000. He faces more than ten charges including contempt of court and drug possession.
