Man allegedly leads police on chase through city

Ada — Law enforcement arrested an Ada man after he allegedly led them in a vehicle pursuit through the streets of Ada Monday.

Arrested was 35-year-old Jerry Dave Malone. The alleged incident started when District 22 D.A. Drug Task Force agents attempted to arrest Malone at a residence on 14th Street. Agent Heath Miller said Malone had warrants for suspicion of unlawful distribution of methamphetamine and unlawful delivery of methamphetamine.

Miller said Malone was outside and when task force agents approached, Malone jumped in a vehicle and allegedly sped away. Miller said Malone hit an agent with the vehicle while fleeing. The agent did not suffer serious injuries.

Law enforcement from several agencies chased Malone down city streets and set up two roadblocks, which Malone sped through, Miller said. Malone allegedly fled toward and then down Mississippi to Kerr Lab, west on 32nd Street to Broadway, north on Broadway to 16th, back to Mississippi where drove south, Miller said.

Miller said Malone stopped and fled on foot near a trailer park on S. Mississippi and allegedly ran toward the bike trail where he surrendered to Ada Police Officer Richard Hubble who cut him off.

Malone was arrested on suspicion of having a warrant, felony eluding, running a road block, driving under suspension, no insurance and aggravated assault on a peace officer.

Miller said the chase lasted only a few minutes and credited the response of all agencies involved which included Ada police, Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputies, Chickasaw Lighthorse police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers, as well as task force agents. He said the pursuit ended sooner and without crashes or injuries to officers because area law enforcement work very well together to corner Malone and leave him with no place to go.

“That helped tremendously,” Miller said.
