A wanted felon is taken into custody on Thursday after a pursuit through the southern part of Evansville.

Several law enforcement agencies were called before 1:30 p.m. to stop a dark green 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by David Anthony Zachary, 33, of Evansville. 

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office says Zachary led authorities on a 25 minute pursuit that wound through the southeast and southwest areas of the city with speeds reaching 50 mph.

The vehicle stopped in the bushes of a home at the corner of Boeke Rd. and John Court. Zachary tried to run off, but he was tracked by the sheriff’s office K9 and was located in a yard at the corner of Harper Ave. and Sycamore St.

Zachary surrendered and was taken into custody. During the chase, authorities say Zachary’s vehicle hit two different vehicles. There were no reported injuries and only minor damage.

Zachary had an active felony warrant for violating the terms of his probation, which stemmed from a September 2017 arrest for reckless driving and resisting law enforcement. He now faces additional charges of resisting law enforcement, operating without a license, and leaving the scene of an accident. Zachary is being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail with no bond.
