HANNIBAL, Mo. — A Quincy, Ill., man with two outstanding felony warrants was taken into custody after reports of a domestic disturbance.

Officers with the Hannibal Police Department were called at approximately 5:44 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, to a domestic disturbance inside a vehicle leaving the Casey’s parking lot on McMasters Avenue. 

Witnesses had reported seeing a woman yelling and trying to exit the vehicle as it was driving away. A witness continued to follow the vehicle until officers arrived. Officers activated their emergency lights and sirens in attempt to stop the vehicle. The vehicle fled, and officers pursued until the driver, Charles J. Scott, 50 of Quincy, fled from the vehicle in Riverview Park. Scott was located in the bushes and taken into custody without further incident. 

Scott had two outstanding felony warrants — one from Adams County, Ill., for fraud and one from Marion County for stealing. He was taken to Marion County Jail. Additional charges could be filed at a later date. 

The female in the vehicle was unharmed and did not request any medical attention.
