Timberlake facing felony charges

Thomas Timberlake charged with two felony

counts after failing to yield to law enforcement officers

Thomas Timberlake

On Sunday July 13, St. Clair County deputies assisted with a call regarding a vehicle failing to yield to an Osceola Police Department officer with emergency lights and siren activated. The vehicle was traveling northbound on Highway 13 in the southbound lanes. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Thomas Timberlake, 54, Osceola, travelled west on B Highway, onto NW 300 Road and then onto NW 101 Road. A deputy attempted to utilize stop sticks at the intersection of NW 101 Road and FF Highway. Timberlake allegedly turned the vehicle and attempted to run the deputy over with his car. The deputy ordered Timberlake to stop and then attempted to fire two rounds into the back tire as the vehicle was going by. The shots failed to stop the vehicle.

Timberlake continued onto FF Highway to NE Center Road and back onto NW 300 Road to NW 101 Road where he turned into a field on private property. Another deputy attempted to fire three shots at the vehicle’s tire. The shots failed and the vehicle drove off of the property and almost struck the property owner’s vehicle. The vehicle headed south on NW 101 Road and then east on NW 300 Road before turning south on NE 75 Road to B Highway. Timberlake traveled east on B Highway and turned south onto NE 175 Road where Timberlake’s vehicle almost struck the Sac-Osage Hospital Ambulance that was staged in case of an accident.

Timberlake continued traveling south in the Red Rock Subdivision on NE 175 Road to his residence where he was taken into custody. On July 14, Timberlake was formally charged and arrest warrants were obtained charging him with two felony counts, a class C felony of assault on a law enforcement officer and a class D felony of resisting arrest/detention/stop by fleeing creating a substantial risk of serious injury/death to any person. Bond was set at $10,000 cash or surety and a court date of Aug. 15 was given.
