Sheriff’s Report: Driver arrested afoot after vehicle becomes stuck during pursuit

QUENEMO, Kan. – The Osage County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Quenemo man on domestic violence and other charges Wednesday after a 911 call and vehicle pursuit that ended with the suspect on foot. The suspect, Cody L. Christenson, 33, of Quenemo, Kan., was eventually apprehended after returning to the initial call address.

A sheriff’s office press release said a call came into the county communications center at 9:06 a.m. May 26, 2021, regarding a physical domestic disturbance in the 30900 block of South Stubbs Road, near Quenemo, Kan. When deputies arrived on scene, they learned the suspect had fled before their arrival.

A description of Christenson and the vehicle he was driving was broadcast to area counties; the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office soon reported a vehicle fitting the description was reentering Osage County. An Osage County unit located the vehicle and attempted to initiate a stop, but the driver failed to stop and a pursuit began.

The vehicle traveled off road through fields and wooded areas, where it eventually became stuck, and the driver fled from the vehicle on foot. Deputies still on scene at the initial call address located Christenson running back to the residence and took him into custody.

Christenson appeared in Osage County District Court Thursday on charges of domestic battery, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, and interference with a law enforcement officer. Osage County Magistrate Judge Lori Breshears set Christenson’s bond at $50,000 Friday. Bond conditions include that Christensen can have no contact with the alleged victim, and he cannot possess firearms or ammunition.

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the arrest by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
