Man Arrested In Sebastian County High-Speed Chase

A Greenwood man is behind bars at the Sebastian County Detention Center on Saturday (March 8) after leading authorities on a high-speed chase in Fort Smith.

Kyle Spoon faces 13 charges, including two counts of battery, six counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of fleeing apprehension, resisting arrest, refusal to submit to a blood-alcohol test, driving while intoxicated and fleeing by vehicle, according to police records.

Police say Spoon was fleeing from authorities when he drove through a 5K and 10K run event hosted by the Junior League of Fort Smith.

A neighbor of Spoon’s said this incident came as a shock, “I was I want to say, I couldn’t hardly believe it really cause he’s 23 years old and sometimes they go through this.”

Sgt. Wayne Barnett said, “None of us knew at the time they were having a 5K run out there this morning, so we had off-duty officers there that were out there helping direct traffic.”

    What a stupid comment by the neighbor! “sometimes they go through this” really! No they don’t, you act like this is a simple public intox or something. This man drove drunk and recklessly at a very high speed through a crowd! Thats not what I call a phase! He should be locked up for many years, maybe the second half of his adult life he can prove he’s ready to be a functional memeber of society.

    Oh my gosh people please read the story the police CALLED OFF the chase and the drunkard kept running from imaginary police and ran through a crowd of people with NO POLICE PURSUIT.I love the way people put stories their own words.Alcohol and/or the lack of being able to handle alcohol was the reason this man ran from imaginary police.Off duty police arrested the man at the run.
