Mabelvale man facing multiple charges after fleeing, crashing into deputy's car

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – A Mabelvale man is facing multiple charges after leading deputies on a chase and crashing into one of their vehicles.

Around 2:40 p.m. on Monday, two Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputies were finishing a call when one of the deputies saw the driver of a vehicle in a yard attempting to conceal something as they passed. 

The deputies tried to talk to the man, later identified as 44-year-old Jason Rasburry, but he refused to roll down his window any further or unlock his door. 

After checking Rasburry for warrants, he showed to have an active warrant out of Saline County for failure to appear on weapons charges. He was asked to step out the vehicle several times, but refused to do so.

He then closed the window all the way and started the car, but could not back up due to the patrol vehicles behind him. Rasburry put the vehicle into drive and fled northbound onto Arch Street.

The deputies attempted to pursue Rasburry, but lost him due to other traffic on Arch Street. They were then flagged down by a witness who told them Rasburry was seen driving westbound on Vinson Road.

The vehicle was finally located by deputies at Geyer Springs Cutoff and Geyer Springs Road.

Rasburry’s vehicle got turned around southbound and struck the passenger side of the patrol vehicle. He continued southbound to Green Road then west over to Chicot Road.

Rasburry then went north to Woodshive Drive. He drove to the end of Woodshive, through the yard of a home, and onto an old logging road through the woods.

The car was located off of Heinke Road in Saline County, directly through the woods from
Woodshive. Rasburry was located hiding under a home at the corner of Heinke Road and
Jupiter road.

He is being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center with no bond and faces charges of aggravated assault, fleeing, first degree criminal mischief, failure to stop after an accident and reckless driving.
