February 08, 2020 about 1:00 a.m. a deputy was on U.S. 36 east of Chillicothe and saw a vehicle approaching him from behind at a very high rate of speed. The deputy checked this vehicle at 101 in a 65 mph area and had to take evasive action as the vehicle nearly struck his patrol vehicle as it passed the deputy.
The vehicle was finally stopped west of Chillicothe near Coon Creek. Further investigation lead the deputy to believe the driver was allegedly driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol and was uncooperative, insulting, belligerent, and resisted arrest.
The deputy informed the driver multiple times he was under arrest and the man initially started to get out of the vehicle when he was observed to look over at a deputy on the passenger side of the vehicle, show the deputy his middle finger and then attempt to place the key back into the ignition (concerned he was attempting to flee) still not following commands, so he was removed from the vehicle and continued resisting our deputy. The suspect was soon handcuffed and placed in a secure area of the patrol vehicle. The arrested person was identified as Kyle Robert Hull, 29, Kansas City.
Two deputies escorted the driver into the LCSO where he continued being uncooperative. The man was transported to the Daviess Dekalb Regional Jail where he was later charged in Associate Court with alleged DWI and Resisting Arrest. Mr. Hull has since posted bond and has a court date scheduled for March 11, 2020.
