Repeat Offender Tased and Arrested for Alleged Drug Possession and Several Other Charges

A man who's been involved in  police chases, evading arrest and escape, and was wanted for parole violation, has been arrested again for evading and resisting and other charges. 28-year-old Jonathan Slagle was arrested Friday night after police stopped his car on a traffic violation and say he took off running.

An officer with a K-9 pursued him through streets and alleys and after several commands to stop the officer fired his taser but said it had no effect. The officer said he then, quote, "assisted the subject to the ground" and struggled with him as he put on handcuffs.

The officer said he found a case nearby with drugs and a pipe and found a set of nunchucks and a club in the car. Slagle has charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of an unlawful weapon, evading and resisting arrest, and the parole violation.

Slagle has several previous convictions. In 2011, he was sentenced for his involvement in helping three men escape from the Wichita County jail annex. Authorities say he and his wife conspired to help three of four escapees and they were caught at Slagle's home where his wife cooked them breakfast.   

Before that, Slagle was involved in a chase and crash on Kemp and then a foot chase. Police say they found him by following a blood trail to a house on Cunningham, and then say a strong body odor led them to Slagle hiding on the roof.

In another chase, officer say he was arrested after driving a stolen truck into a stock pond. Also, Archer County deputies say he burned a car found at Lake Kickapoo.
