Pulaski County deputies report a suspect's car hit a patrol car during the course of a long chase south of Little Rock yesterday that ended with the arrest of a man with an outstanding warrant on a firearms charge.

From the report on the chase:

Two deputies had made a call at 12516 Arch Street and, when preparing to leave about 2:25 p.m,. Monday, one deputy said she thought a driver of a vehicle in the yard had attempted to conceal something. He identified himself as Jason Rasburry, 44.

The deputies said Rasburry refused to roll his window down or unlock his door. A radio check showed he was named in a Saline County warrant for failure to appear on a weapons charge.

Deputies asked him to get out of his vehicle. They said he refused, then drove away. Deputies gave chase, but lost him on Arch Street Pike.

Another deputy, hearing the vehicle had been spotted on Vinson Road, drove there and people pointed him toward Hilaro Springs Road, but he couldn't find him. Later, the suspect's car was spotted at Geyer Springs Cutoff and Geyer Springs Road. He was driving northbound, but turned around and struck a patrol unit's passenger side in the process. He kept going, finally to Chicot Road and beyond. Deputies found the vehicle off Heinke Road in Saline County and the suspect was found hiding under a residence. at Heinke and Jupiter. He was charged with fleeing and aggravated assault.
