Mayville Man Accused Of Fleeing From Police Makes Initial Court Appearance

(Neosho) Cash bond was set at $5,000 dollars Friday for a Mayville man accused of running from police. Lynn Davis is facing felony counts of Fleeing or Eluding an Officer, Possession of Cocaine and Possession of THC, both second offenses, as well as misdemeanor Resisting an Officer. During the evening hours on April 18, a police officer with the Neosho, Rubicon and Ashippun Police Department spotted a vehicle with expired plates and illegally tinted windows in the Village of Neosho. When the officer approached, he allegedly noticed an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and that Davis’ eyes were bloodshot. According to the criminal complaint, Davis repeatedly denied requests by the officer to search his vehicle for any illegal substances. The 34-year-old then accelerated off but due to the falling snow and worsening road conditions was only able to travel at speeds ranging between 20 to 30-miles-per-hour. As the pursuit reached State Highway 67, Davis reportedly reached 60-miles-per-hour. Tire deflation devices were deployed in the area of Riverview Drive which deflated the front two tires of Davis’ vehicle. A short time later, Davis came to a stop on Highway 60 and was placed under arrest. Davis reportedly apologized for his actions and allegedly told authorities (quote), “all I wanted to do was smoke some crack and get high.” Two small bags which allegedly tested positive for crack and marijuana were located inside the vehicle. If convicted, Davis faces over 11 years in prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 3.
