Charges in vehicle pursuit pending
Published: February 29, 2016

On February 28, 2016 a Mountain Home police officer observed a white Chevy van traveling on Highway 5 South and turn onto McClure Street. As he followed on McClure Street, the van began to accelerate to approximately 40 MPH. The speed limit on McClure is 25 MPH.  

The officer initiated a traffic stop near McClure and Glenbriar. At this time the van did not stop and the pursuit began. The van drove through several stop signs and made its way back to Highway 5 South and headed South bound. The pursuit left Mountain Home and continued through Salesville, then through Norfork and turned onto Highway 341.  

A Baxter County Sheriff’s Deputy was able to deploy stop sticks. Moments later the driver’s side front tire was disabled causing the van to stop. The male driver and a female passenger then bailed out and fled on foot into the woods. The van then rolled backward and struck a Baxter County deputies vehicle causing damage. After a short foot pursuit, the female, Stevie Dixon, was captured. The driver, identified as CHRISTOPHER CROTEAU, W/M, DOB 01/05/1981 was able to escape and was not apprehended at this time. 

The driver remains at large and charges are pending against him.  The female passenger Stevie Lyn Dixon was charged with obstructing governmental operations and fleeing on foot. She was incarcerated in the Baxter County Detention Facility with bond set at $1,860.
