A 28-year-old Hutchinson man arrested on charges of aggravated battery, flee and elude, reckless driving, and attempt to elude another police officer was in court Wednesday for the formal reading of charges against him.
Todd Lloyd accused of failing to stop for a Hutchinson police officer on K-61 at Avenue G. The chase apparently continued into South Hutchinson where the officer was told to terminate the pursuit. However, another officer observed the same vehicle driving at a high rate of speed at Avenue E and Main in South Hutchinson, and failed to stop at the intersection.
That officer turned his lights and siren on and the suspect vehicle traveled in a residential area of South Hutchinson. The driver then turned north on Adams and then west on Avenue D and eventually turned into a driveway in the 400 block of East D. They says he then proceeded north, turned east into a field and wrecked the vehicle in a drainage ditch. He then allegedly ran east from the vehicle.
The officers say they found a female passenger in the car, Allecia Deuel who was injured and taken to Promise Regional Medical Center for treatment. She was arrested for a probation violation for convictions which include Reno drug charges from 1996 and 2009. But, according to the jail log, she also faces two charges of identity theft, two counts of destroying a written instrument, two counts of forgery, and two counts of theft.
Lloyd was found hiding under a small tree directly in front of the vehicle.
This occurring around 1:44 a-m Saturday morning.
Lloyd’s bond set at 6-thousand dollars, but does have a department of corrections hold.
