A Stuart man was taken into custody early Tuesday morning after leading at least two law enforcement agencies on a chase. The Stuart Police Department reports an officer observed a defective taillight in a 1998 Mercedes Benz traveling through Stuart at approximately 12:30 a.m. As he worked to determine the issue with the taillight, he activated his red and blue lights to get the vehicle to pull over. The driver, 43-year-old Shane Edwin Davis, did not stop however, but pulled to the side of the road and then negotiated a U-turn, fleeing in the opposite direction. The officer gave chase and notified the Guthrie County Sheriff’s Office of the pursuit. They reached speeds of up to 100 miles per hour while Davis employed other evasive tactics, such as turning off his lights, driving on the wrong side of the road and running stop signs. Davis was apprehended in the City of Redfield in Dallas County when he stopped the car, exited from the driver’s side and attempted to walk away. The officer drew his weapon and ordered Davis to the ground. He complied and was taken into custody. He told authorities he was attempting to elude capture because he did not have a valid driver’s license. A search of Davis’ person and the car uncovered a broken glass pipe in his pocket, an orange smoking device and a cigarette package with another glass pipe in the car. Davis was transported to the Guthrie County jail and charged with second- or subsequent-offense eluding, reckless driving, driving while barred, possession of drug paraphernalia along with several traffic violations.
