One suspect was immediately apprehended while another fled inside a nearby home.

Details on the second individual were not immediately available.

Tucker is charged with first degree wanton endangerment, possession of marijuana, second degree fleeing/evading police in a motor vehicle, and disregarding a stop sign. He is being held with no bond listed and will appear in court on Monday morning.
