A Somerset man was arrested on several charges following a pursuit.


Pulaski County Deputy Aaron Curtis responded to a domestic disturbance call Friday afternoon, involving injury to a female at a residence on Spencer Avenue in Ferguson.


A male subject was leaving the residence in a 2005 Suzuki automobile.  Deputy Curtis activated his emergency equipment in an attempt to stop the subject after the vehicle barely missed striking the cruiser.


The fleeing vehicle ran through several yards in the area and attempted, on multiple occasions, to cause a collision with the pursuing deputy.  The suspect returned to Spencer Avenue after colliding with the Deputy's vehicle and fled a short distance on foot before being tased by other responding deputies.


Despite being tased, 21 year old David Woodall, of Somerset, continued to resist arrest while deputies attempted to subdue him.


Mr. Woodall was lodged in the Pulaski County Jail on charges of:


  • Fleeing or Evading Police, 1st Degree (Motor Vehicle).
  • Wanton Endangerment-First Degree-Police Officer.
  • Wanton Endangerment-1st Degree.
  • Assault, 4th Degree (Domestic Violence) No Visible Injury.
  • Criminal Mischief, 1st Degree.
  • No Insurance
  • Reckless Driving.
  • Menacing.
  • Resisting Arrest.


Further charges may be forthcoming as the investigation continues by the Sheriff's Office.
