Man arrested after car chase down Hawthorne Road and E. University Avenue

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Kaevion Raqeem Sanders, 29 was arrested yesterday after allegedly bumping his ex-girlfriend’s car, pursuing her car down Tower Road while running other cars off the road, and later fleeing from deputies in neighborhoods bordering SE Hawthorne Rd and E. University Avenue.

The incident began around 12:45 p.m. on February 7 when the victim was leaving work near the intersection of Archer Road and Tower Road. She reported that Sanders bumped her vehicle and yelled at her to get out of the car. She fled north on Tower Road, followed by Sanders. The victim told the responding deputy that she had never driven so fast and that she was driving as safely as she could, but Sanders was running people off the road in an effort to get to her.

At the entrance to the Sunrise subdivision, the victim drove around the island in the entrance repeatedly, yelling for someone to call 911. During this time, Sanders allegedly again rammed her vehicle. A witness saw this and called for help, later giving a statement that she had seen Sanders “bump” the victim’s vehicle and that he was being extremely aggressive.

At about 2:25 p.m., Sanders’ vehicle was located at 1425 SE Hawthorne Road. A deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop with lights and siren activated, but Sanders refused to pull over. Sanders reportedly drove east on SE Hawthorne Road, turned north on SE 21st Street, then east on E. University Avenue, running the stop sign there. Sanders immediately turned north onto NE 21st Terrace, ran another stop sign, wound through that neighborhood, and eventually failed to negotiate a turn, striking a chain link fence. Sanders allegedly got out of the car, jumped over the fence, and ran a short distance before being taken down and handcuffed by deputies. Deputies reported that they found about 1.22 grams of marijuana in the car.

Sanders has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill, property damage, possession of marijuana, resisting an officer without violence, and aggravated fleeing with damage. He is being held on $111,000 bail.
