Osage Beach man facing multiple charges after police pursuit involving drugs & alcohol

David Evans

An Osage Beach man is pulled over after he drives the wrong way on Osage Beach Parkway.

It was Sunday when Camden County deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop in Osage Beach.  But the driver refused to stop, crossing into oncoming lanes of traffic during a brief pursuit.  He eventually came to a stop in the Walmart parking lot.

When deputies approached the vehicle they learned the driver, 35-year-old David Evans, was “extremely intoxicated”.  Deputies also report they found a quantity of suspected cocaine in Evans’ vehicle. 

Evans was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, driving while intoxicated, and careless and imprudent driving.
