Count #1-Class D felony resisting arrest by fleeing
Jan. 3, 2017- Guilty plea to all counts. Count one-imposition of sentencing was suspended and Woods was placed on five years supervised probation and he was ordered to serve 30 days shock time in county jail. Fines totaling $1,058.50 were issued on the other counts.
The charges stem from an incident on July 16, when St. Clair County deputies assisted Osceola Police Department with stopping two motorcycles traveling at a high rate of speed and failing to yield.
The motorcycles were originally traveling northbound on Highway 13. When they reached Lowry City they turned around and started traveling southbound on Highway 13. Several deputies joined in the attempt to stop the vehicles. While passing Highway 82 speeds reached approximately 135 miles per hour.
Deputies continued south on Highway 13 toward Polk County attempting to stop the motorcycles. Two deputies from Polk County attempted a rolling road block and one of the motorcycles went between them and continued south on Highway 13. As they approached Highway 32, Bolivar, one motorcycle operated by Woods pulled over and stopped.
