Authorities say a man involved in a domestic battery case fled from Independence County Sheriff’s Deputies before he was taken into custody yesterday.
According to the incident report, Chief Deputy Aaron Moody was assisting his officers in locating a suspect who had left a scene of domestic battery. The suspect’s vehicle was soon spotted in Batesville, and after leading officers on a chase across several Batesville streets, the vehicle stopped in the Flower’s Bakery parking area, the report said.
The driver, who was identified as the man involved in the domestic violence case, was taken into custody. Police gave his identity as Thomas Brandin Corter, 35, of Cave City.
Corter is facing charges of domestic battery, fleeing, no proof of liability insurance, driving on a suspended driver’s license, and running a red light. He goes to court on March 18.
The victim in the domestic battery case was taken to White River Medical Center, treated, and released.
