Master Police Officer Danny Chavez says an officer attempted to stop a car near 95th Street and Quivira Road because the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

"The car fled into the Oak Park Mall parking lot, where two adult passengers jumped from the moving car, one of which was partially dragged by the car," Chavez said.

Recorded radio traffic indicates the officer stopped to check on the women who jumped out of the fleeing car and temporarily lost sight of the suspect vehicle.

The car was found in the parking lot near the Macy's Furniture and Mattress Gallery, 11201 West 95th Street, but the driver was no longer with the car.

Officers began saturating the area and prepared to search with police dogs. Witnesses at the nearby Houlihan's, 11851 West 95th Street, pointed out the suspects hiding spot just outside the building. The suspect was arrested just outside the Houlihan's building.

Johnson County Med-Act and the Overland Park Fire Department responded to check on both of the women who jumped from the moving car. Officer Chavez says both were treated for minor injuries.

The suspect, only identified as a 33-year-old Olathe man, has yet to be formally charged. Court records show pending charges of felony aggravated battery, felony fleeing a law enforcement officer-reckless, felony obstruction of the legal process, and misdemeanor driving while suspended. He is scheduled to make his first court appearance Tuesday afternoon.

The same suspect has an extensive criminal record in Johnson County with previous cases dating back to 2003 with charges including domestic violence, theft, and felony possession of methamphetamine.
