New Mexico fugitive arrested after hitting Bluefield police cruiser

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - A fugitive out of New Mexico is arrested after hitting a police cruiser in Bluefield.

The accident happened at the intersection of Bland Street and Jones Street at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Lashawn Davis is wanted in New Mexico for failure to comply with his probationary terms.

Police say Davis drove his vehicle into Sgt. M.D. McPherson's lane, striking the cruiser.

Damage to the patrol vehicle was minimal. Both McPherson and Davis were uninjured.

Davis is scheduled for a fugitive hearing later Thursday. If he waives extradition, New Mexico authorities will come and get him within 10 days.
