Man Arrested for Eluding Police

Posted: Updated:

A man is behind bars after running from police numerous times Tuesday.

Just before 6 p.m. police were called out to a home in 100 block of East Devere Way in Sparks on reports of an unwanted subject at the residence. 

As police arrived a man fled the scene at a high rate of speed and due to safety reasons the police ended the pursuit.  

Police determined the man was 35-year-old Michael James Dragos, who had a warrant out for his arrest from a previous charge. 

Police attempted to get Dragos to turn himself in but he refused. But around 8 p.m. Police got a tip that he may be in the area of the Winco on Northtowne Lane.  

On arrival, Police attempted to make contact with Dragos and he again fled this time on foot.

Shortly after, Police caught Dragos. He was taken into custody and booked into Washoe County Jail on Eluding charges and for the previous warrant.
