During the second incident, which was on North Knox Street at around 1:20 p.m., officers spotted Flowers driving a silver Mercury Grand Marquise and attempted to pull him over.

“Flowers refused to stop for Officers and fled North on US 29, Officers terminated the pursuit after a short time for public safety,” Weed said.

Within 10 minutes of ending the pursuit, officers spotted Flowers returning to town on Butter and Egg Road. Once again, Flowers refused to stop and fled up U.S. Highway 29.

“Officers were in position and deployed tire spikes to flatten Flowers’ tires. Flowers had three flat tires and still refused to stop,” Weed said.

Officers chased Flowers until he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a ditch. Flowers fled a short distance on foot, but was caught and charged with reckless endangerment and two counts of attempting to elude and resisting arrest. He was also issued a traffic ticket for driving with a revoked license.

He is being held in the Troy City Jail on a total bond of $3,300.
