Title
17th/Uintah
Location
On Saturday, June 17th, CSPD officers received a tip from a concerned citizen of a wanted party, Derek Okazaki, in the area near 17th and Uintah. Officers flooded the neighborhood and flushed him out of hiding. A foot chase began with several officers. The pursuit continued over varied terrain, including a huge retaining wall. Mr. Okazaki ran to a gas station where he refused to obey orders to stop. An Officer "tasered" the suspect over a grassy strip, behind the store. Due to the use of the taser, the man was taken to a local hospital for a routine evaluation. When he arrived at the hospital by police cruiser, he fled on foot a second time. Again, he was pursued on foot and, aided by another helpful citizen, Mr. Okazaki was caught again. Derek Okazaki was arrested on several misdemeanor and felony warrants on Kidnapping, DV, Strangulation, Drugs, and other charges. A recruit officer received a minor injury due to his landing over the retaining wall, which was estimated to be 15' in height.

Traffic Crash
Title
5200 E. Platte Ave.
Location
On June 16th, at the tail end of rush hour traffic a white Ford sedan was eastbound on Platte, began to swerve as it approached Wooten, drove off the right side of the road, struck a light pole, and continued over 100' where it struck a guy wire attached to a utility pole. The vehicle then rolled and came to rest on its side. The force on the poles from the accident caused two wooden electrical poles to break or split. This caused a chain-reaction of events including two small grass fires at the scene of the accident, and another fire about 1/4 mile away where a transformer blew. Amazingly, the single occupant of the car walked away from the accident dazed, but uninjured. He had reportedly fallen asleep just prior to the accident. CSFD and Cimarron Fire Department were able to extinguish the fires within several minutes. The loss of electrical service was temporary and isolated to mostly commercial customers. CS Utilities rapidly responded and restored power to the affected area in a little more than an hour after the wreck.
