Man charged in minivan mayhem

On November 21, Jason H Goodman, 38, was arrested on a slew of felony and misdemeanor charges, after he led authorities on a high-speed chase while driving a minivan.

According to an arrest warrant filed by Investigator Dustin Burke, Oneida Police Department, the chase began after Burke spotted Goodman heading southbound in front of Hardees and attempted to initiate a traffic stop because he was aware that Goodman had no license from previous encounters with him.

As Burke pursued the vehicle, allegedly Goodman accelerated through the parking lot of Bethlehem Baptist Church  across Highway 27 onto Shepard Road. From Shepard Road, Goodman turned right onto CK Lewallen Drive, and then right onto North Oneida Circle where he almost hit Lieutenant William Angel’s patrol car head on.

Nearly hitting a cop car didn’t cause Goodman to stop fleeing from authorities as he allegedly headed back onto 27 driving southbound again. This time while he was on 27 Goodman ran a traffic light at Oak Grove and then circled the AZ Long building. After circling the building, Goodman again entered the highway heading southbound, reportedly barely missing more patrol cars and then turning left onto Cross Street.

At this point, Officer Burke attempted to get in front of the assailant, but was subdued when Goodman turned his minivan left, striking the front end of Burke’s patrol car.

Goodman then headed down a dead-end street and through a yard towards Oneida High School where the minivan mayhem came to an end when K9 officer Toby Jeffers, Oneida Police Department, and Burke boxed Goodman in.

Goodman was arrested with no further incident, and transported to have blood drawn to determine his level of possible intoxication.  A search of Goodman’s vehicle revealed several baggies, and a small amount of meth in a contact container.

Goodman was charged with driving under the influence fifth offense, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, felony evading, traffic control device, speeding, seatbelt law, illegal passing, driving on a revoked license fourth offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of the drug free school zone act.  He is being held at the Scott County Justice Center with no bond, however is scheduled to be in court on December 6 at 3 p.m.
