EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – An Evansville man is behind bars after deputies say he led them on a chase through the city.

Kevin Mobley of Evansville was arrested Thursday after a second failed attempt to elude a Vanderburgh County Sherriff’s Office deputy.

While checking the parking lot of the west side Walmart in Evansville, the deputy said they recognized a vehicle that was involved in a chase on June 29th.

The deputy approached the vehicle and recognized the driver, Kevin Mobley, as the suspect from the previous pursuit.

Before Mobley could be arrested, deputies say he put he his vehicle into reverse and rammed the parked deputy’s cruiser, then fled driving east on the Lloyd.

Before reaching the Kentucky state line, another deputy deployed stop sticks and deflated all four tires.

Deputies say Mobley made it to Kentucky and were asked to stop pursuing him.

Once in Kentucky, the Henderson Police and sheriff’s deputies took over the pursuit.

Mobley’s vehicle eventually became disabled and was taken into custody. He’s being held at the Henderson County Jail, where he’s being held on a $250 cash bond.

His court date is scheduled for July 8th at 9:00am.
