Additional Information

The charges stem from an incident in the evening hours on Feb. 25, when a St. Clair County deputy was notified Osceola Police Department had a vehicle failing to yield on Highway 13. The vehicle turned west on Highway B and was traveling approximately 80 miles per hour. A deputy joined in the chase at Lake Shore Estates. The vehicle continued traveling west reaching speeds in excess of 110 miles per hour and failing to stop at stop signs. After passing M Highway the vehicle ran off the south side of the road and then crossed over and went off the north side.  The driver regained control and continued west through the junction of Highway H.   

     After entering Bates County the vehicle reached the intersection of Highway P and turned north, then into a driveway, and into a dirt field.  When the vehicle came to a stop the driver got out and ran east though the field.  Deputies pursued the driver into the field and took him into custody approximately 100 yards from his vehicle. Alderman was identified as the driver and stated he was running because his wife pulled a knife on him. He also noted he doesn't have a driver’s license.  A 15-year old female juvenile was identified as a passenger in the vehicle.
