PARK CITY, Kan. (AP) — A man who drowned after jumping into a pond while trying to evade police has been identified as a 30-year-old from Arkansas City.
Officials say Jeremy Horton jumped into the retention pond Saturday night near Park City and drowned after refusing orders to come out.
Divers pulled Horton from the water after about 45 minutes but he could not be revived and was pronounced dead.
Nolte says police were called after Horton began acting strangely at a Rusty Eck Ford and refused to leave.
He ran from officers and his vehicle eventually became disabled after he drove into a field. Norton then jumped into the pond.
