Tulsa Man Leads Police On Chase
A Tulsa, Okla., man is facing multiple felony charges after he led Prairie Grove police on a car chase on U.S. 62 Highway that ended just past the Farmington city limits in a Fayetteville residential subdivision.
Cody Haley, 26, was arrested by Prairie Grove police Feb. 21 in connection with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving, driving on suspended or revoked license, no proof of insurance, fictitious vehicle license, speeding, one or no headlights and on a hold for a warrant out of Benton
Officer Warner Burgess was going to pull over Haley near Little Elm Road and Highway 62 just after midnight, Feb. 21, because of an apparent broken taillight, according to Lt. Tim Standifer with Prairie Grove police. Haley took off in his black pickup truck, continued on Little Elm Road, turned onto Bethel Blacktop and eventually headed toward Farmington on U.S. 62.
Standifer said Haley drove into the neighborhood at Camellia Lane in Fayetteville, just off Martin Luther King Blvd., striking and damaging several mailboxes, before his vehicle came to a stop and he was arrested by police.
Standifer said police suspect that Haley fled the officer because of the outstanding warrant and because of the items in his vehicle.
Farmington and Fayetteville police departments also assisted in the pursuit.
