|Doyle B Dunn|
The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Doyle B Dunn, a parole absconder from El Dorado Springs Mo. Sheriff Mosher said they started tracking the area Dunn was at on a map by the locations of citizens calling in and started placing plain clothes deputies in the area waiting for him to be spotted again. “The deputy that captured Dunn just happened to be the same one that started the pursuit Tuesday” said Mosher. The Sheriff said Dunn asked the deputy for a ride, but when the deputy told him he was a deputy and that he (Dunn) was under arrest, Dunn began to fight the deputy. The Sheriff said a citizen called in and told dispatch that a deputy was in a fight so additional units could respond and assist. The deputy was sent to the emergency room for injuries to his face and was cleared a few hours later. “He received injuries to his face and left eye but is expected to completely recover.” The Sheriff said it was ironic that Dunn was attempting to make his way back to Cedar County and was arrested just 12 feet from the Cedar County line. Mosher said “he almost made it, but thanks to all the citizens that helped us and the deputy, he was just a little short.” Dunn is being held in the Vernon County Jail with no bond.
