CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A man wanted for domestic violence charges was arrested after leading police officers on a chase in northeast Charlotte early Wednesday morning, police said.
Around 6:30 Tuesday evening, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were called to to a home by a woman who said a man threatened her with a gun. The woman said the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Ervin Goode, pointed a gun at her before leaving the house. Officers began looking for Goode but were unable to find him at that time.
A few minutes before 9 p.m., the victim called police again, saying Goode came back to the house and pushed her down, strangled her and took her phone when she tried to call 911. CMPD obtained warrants against Goode for assault by strangulation and assault on a female.
CMPD found Goode in a car around 4 a.m. Wednesday. When officers tried to stop Goode, he refused to pull over and led them on a chase on I-485 before jumping from the car on Breeze Hill Lane, which is off Harris Houston Road near UNC Charlotte.
Multiple officers responded to the scene and K-9s were called to help locate Goode. They were unable to find him until after 5:30 a.m. when an officer spotted him and chased him. A K-9 at the scene was able to track down Goode and he was taken into custody.
CMPD says additional charges after forthcoming against Goode.
