TPD Arrests One After Vehicle Chase

Taylorville Police Department follows a chase through town and arrests a Taylorville man. 

TPD arrests a man in response to illegal activity on the 600 block of Cottage Street. 


Monday night, officers conducted a traffic stop and the suspect fled. Dispatch then received a call that a male, wearing a red hoodie, jumped out of the passenger side of the vehicle. 


Just as TPD began to disengage, the driver turned on a dead-end road and the vehicle lost power. 


Police apprehended 47-year-old Michael Neece of Taylorville without incident and charged him with Aggravated Fleeing and Eluding. He is out on bond for that charge along with Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Weapon by a Felon, and Resisting Arrest. 


TPD thanks Christian County State’s Attorney Wes Poggenpohl, as a judge set Neece’s bond at $150,000. 


Police could not find the alleged passenger.
