Jefferson Man Involved In Two Law Enforcement Pursuits Arrested For Driving His Snowmobile

Just in the past two weeks, a Jefferson man has been Tased and led law enforcement authorities from two counties in pursuits and has now been arrested again for driving a snowmobile in May. The Jefferson Police Department reports they were advised by a Greene County jailer that a neighbor in the 300 block of East Monroe Street, 32-year-old Steven Logan Dzuris, had been driving the snowmobile around the yard. Because of his previous encounters, the officers were well aware that Dzuris had his driver’s license barred and had been warned by Greene County authorities about this same issue in the recent past. A short time later, at approximately 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, the department was advised again that Dzuris was operating the snowmobile on his property. Dzuris was arrested and charged with driving while barred, an aggravated misdemeanor. These charges are on top of those levied at the beginning of the month when Dzuris refused to comply with officers after being pulled over for careless driving and had to be Tased. He faces eluding, interference with official acts, assault on persons in certain occupations, reckless driving and failure to obey a stop sign charges from that incident. Then, within the week, Dzuris led authorities on a high-speed chase, reaching speeds upwards of 110 miles per hour. He entered Carroll County and was apprehended after spike strips and a rolling roadblock were initiated. Charges from that incident include driving while barred, reckless driving, third-offense operating a motor vehicle while under the influence, interference with official acts and eluding.
