Man charged after chase

A Killeen man has been charged with evading arrest after leading police in a foot chase Tuesday night.

Jonas Rosser Jr., 23, was arraigned Thursday by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on a charge of evading arrest or detention with a previous conviction.

According to an arrest affidavit, officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Skyline Drive Tuesday night for a call of a disturbance with shots fired.

Officers heard shouting from inside the residence and observed a male leaving from the rear of the home, the affidavit said. An officer told the male to come talk, but said the man did not comply and re-entered the home before fleeing on foot.

According to the affidavit, officers pursued the man until he was found in a backyard on Mary Jane Drive.

The man was identified as Rosser, who had a prior conviction for evading arrest.

Rosser’s bond is set at $50,000. | 254-501-7552
