OLATHE, Kan. – Police pursued an aggravated assault suspect from Olathe to I-435 and Lee Blvd., where he refused to exit his vehicle or follow directions from officers.

Shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday police were called to a residence in Olathe in the 16000 block of W. 141st Terrace on a report of domestic violence. As officers arrived the man was leaving the scene in his vehicle. Police attempted to stop the man but he refused.

The suspect finally stopped on I-435 between Mission and Nall, but refused to get out of the truck, which shut down a part of I-435 for over 30 minutes.

Police did not believe the man was armed, but as a precaution began talking with him in an attempt to get him out of the car so they could take him into custody. The man finally gave up without incident.
