Zachary Edward Warford
A Muldrow man was arrested March 30 and charged with attempting to evade police, court records show.
Zachary Edward Warford, 27, faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 on the felony charge. His next court date is scheduled for 9 a.m. May 19.
On March 19, a Roland police officer was informed that Arkansas State Police had pursued a white Honda Accord driven by Warford, who had felony warrants from Arkansas, into Oklahoma and had just passed the Cheyenne Gentlemen’s Club.
About 10 minutes later, dispatch informed the officer that the Accord was at the Valero station on South Roland Road.
An agent with the District 27 Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force assisted in the search for the vehicle, which was found parked at the Interstate Inn. The officer tried to block the car in, but the Accord quickly sped away onto U.S. Highway 64.
With officers in pursuit, Warford continued heading west on Highway 64 toward Muldrow at speeds up to 115 mph. After passing Cottonwood Road, Warford began to slow down. He put his hand out the window and sunroof of the vehicle and came to a stop about a quarter-mile west of Cottonwood. Warford was then taken into custody.
