Dickinson Police blotters show that two individuals were arrested this week while attempting to flee and evade police, including one arrest which required the use of non-lethal force to subdue and apprehend the suspect.
Scott Alex Doll
A police chase early in the evening of July 13 ended with a 49 year-old man facing four misdemeanor counts including preventing arrest and menacing.
Scott Alex Doll was traveling on 3rd Avenue West in a white, four-door, GMC truck when he was witnessed to swerve between lanes by other motorists. According to one motorist who spoke with The Press, Doll was constantly accelerating and applying his brakes in an erratic manner and appeared intoxicated.
At the traffic light at the intersection of 9th Street West and 3rd Avenue, the witness stopped at the traffic light when Doll pulled up beside him at the intersection. According to the witness, Doll rolled down his window and began yelling obscenities at him.
The suspect reportedly leaned out of his vehicle with a baseball bat and began making threatening comments toward the driver, saying “I’m going to kill you.” The witness said that he was in fear of Doll and when the traffic light turned green he began moving into the intersection and yielded to southbound traffic in order to make a left hand turn. According to the witness, Doll then made a hard left turn in an attempt to strike his vehicle but instead collided with an oncoming vehicle.
Numerous individuals witnessed the accident and police were notified.
Following the collision, Doll fled the scene before later being apprehended by Dickinson Police and charged with A Misdemeanor preventing an arrest, A Misdemeanor menacing, B Misdemeanor refusal to submit to chemical testing, B Misdemeanor leaving the scene involving a motor vehicle accident.
