Driver Who Chooses to Run and Hide from the Law Gets a Little More than he Bargained for, GOODRICH, November 30, 2008 - On November 29, 2008 at approximately 10:15 pm, Deputy Lee Rogers with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was on Patrol in Goodrich when he spotted a vehicle that was speeding. Rogers attempted to pull the vehicle over with the intentions of simply warning the driver to slow it down a little. The driver of the 2008 Chevy Trailblazer, Quentin Walker of Cold Spring felt differently about it and chose to evade. The chase took Rogers down 1988 West to a house where Walker quickly jumped out of the vehicle and hid in the back yard of a residence on FM-1988. In the meantime, deputies Billy Duke and Joe Clifton moved in to backup and support their comrade.

Initially, the driver of the vehicle could not be found, however Duke's persistence led him to find Walker hiding in the back yard and he apprehended and detained Walker. Walker was searched and placed under arrest for evading arrest in a vehicle (which is a felony). What would've been a simple warning turned into a felony charge for Walker who was arrested and booked into Polk County Jail. It was later discovered that Walker had three warrants out for his arrest. The vehicle, which allegedly belongs to Walker's girlfriend, was searched and impounded by Harwood Wrecker Service.
