Springfield police have obtained a warrant for a man suspected of trying to run down two police officers during a traffic stop, and then leading police on a chase through a north-end residential neighborhood Sunday.

 

Authorities still have not apprehended 38-year-old Sam Jefferson.  He is facing charges of aggravated battery and aggravated fleeing and eluding police for the incident, in which police say he brushed two officers with his truck while fleeing a traffic stop at 11th and North Grand.  With officers in pursuit, Jefferson allegedly sped into the Northgate subdivision, where police called off the chase.

 

Police say he ditched his truck in the subdivision and fled on foot.  Police impounded the vehicle, but still have not located Jefferson.  He is described as a black male, six-foot-two and 260 pounds.  He will face a bond of at least $250,000 once he's taken into custody.
