A suspect who had felony warrants while allegedly driving a stolen vehicle is now jailed on numerous complaints after Shawnee officers used a taser to apprehend him when an overnight pursuit turned into a foot chase.

Jonathan Michael Martinez, 26, is jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center on complaints that include eluding police, obstructing an officer, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of controlled dangerous substance, methamphetamine, and paraphernalia, as well as unlawful personation of another.

Formal charges have not been filed; he is being held on $165,000 bond.

Martinez was arrested by Shawnee police following an overnight pursuit Thursday.

Shawnee Police Cpl. Vivian Lozano-Stafford said it was about 3:26 a.m. when officers noticed an older model silver Saturn at Farrall and Broadway Streets and recognized it as being a vehicle that had been reported stolen the night before.

There were four occupants in that vehicle, she said, as it proceeded to turn into the South Beard car wash, where four people were seen walking around the parking lot.

The vehicle pulled out going southbound on Beard, she said, with officers confirming through the tag that the vehicle was stolen. Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the vehicle continued southbound on Gordon Cooper Drive in the northbound lanes before turning eastbound into an open field, she said.

The driver, later identified as Martinez, allegedly fled on foot and officers began a foot pursuit, Lozano-Stafford said, while giving several commands to stop or be tased.

When officers were close enough, she said a taser was deployed, enabling them to take Martinez into custody without further incident.

Initially, Martinez gave authorities his brother's name, Lozano-Stafford said, and it was determined he also had six outstanding warrants.

During the course of the investigation and before being transported to jail, Martinez was in two different police vehicles, she said. Officers check the back seats before and after transports, she said, and in the first vehicle they found a white pouch with a glass pipe and residue, along with three other baggies.

Case reports will be forwarded to the district attorney's office for consideration of any charges.

The three other occupants of the vehicle were detained in the car wash parking by police, but they were not arrested, Lozano-Stafford said.

Pottawatomie County District Court records show Martinez had outstanding warrants in other cases, including a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Court records show an arrest warrant was issued when Martinez failed to appear in court for those other cases on Oct. 4.
