BELLMEAD (April 2, 2014) Officers in Bellmead used a stun gun to subdue a man after a low-speed chase through the community.

Michael Loadholt, 38, was free on $5,000 bond Wednesday after he was charged with evading arrest in a motor vehicle, jail records showed.

Bellmead officers were sent at around 4:20 p.m. Tuesday to an address in the 3100 block of Bill Street after a caller reported that some men were fighting.

By the time officers arrived, one of the men had left the scene in a black Cadillac, Bellmead Detective Michael Miller said.

Officers later spotted the Cadillac and attempted to stop the driver, but he refused to pull over.

Officers followed the car on eastbound Bellmead Drive to Airbase Road, where the driver turned, but still refused to stop, Miller said.

The driver finally stopped after he turned onto Pecan Drive in front of a residence.

Miller said the driver complied when ordered to get out of the car, but after that refused to obey officers’ orders.

Eventually the officers were forced to use their stun guns to subdue him, Miller said.

The three-mile pursuit never exceeded speeds of 30 miles per hour, Miller said.
