Lemoore police officers, responding to a North Lemoore Ave. address regarding a disturbance between two people, ended up arresting a Hanford man for possession of a stolen vehicle and resisting and attempting to escape from the custody of a police officer.

On Wednesday, January 4, at about 11:30 a.m. after arriving on the scene, an officer noticed a pickup truck in the parking lot he observed running and unattended. The police determined that the truck had been reported stolen out of the City of Tulare.
Police determined that 29-year-old Kacie Chandler of Hanford had driven the pickup to the apartment complex. Officers found Chandler in a nearby apartment and as the police spoke to the suspect, he fled on foot.
Officers chased Chandler and caught up with him a short time later where a physical struggle ensued. An officer was forced to deploy a Taser and Chandler was taken into custody.
He was transported to the Adventist Medical Center to be treated for injuries sustained during the incident. While at the hospital and still handcuffed, Chandler managed to his hands in front of his body and attempted to run from the officer. The officer caught Chandler while still in the emergency room.
Chandler was booked into the Kings County Jail for the charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting/obstructing/delaying an officer, and attempted escape from custody. He was also being held on a probation violation. His bail was set at $25,000.
