Wanted Man Arrested for Domestic Assault in Multi-County Search


On 7/01/24, at approximately 300am, Bates County Deputies were advised of a domestic assault that occurred in Vernon County where the suspect was gone on arrival of law enforcement. A description was broadcasted of the vehicle involved to the deputies and that the suspect may be armed.

At approximately 330am a Bates County Deputy observed the vehicle in the Passaic area. The Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle and it failed to stop. The Deputy began to chase the vehicle where it eventually made its way back to I49. The pursuit continued northbound from Passaic into Cass County. Additional deputies responded from home to assist in the pursuit.

At approximately mile marker 156 the Cass County Sheriff's Office successfully deployed spike strips deflating at least one tire. Shortly after the spike strips were deployed a Bates County K9 Unit deployed the Grappler bringing the pursuit to a safe stop. The suspect then exited the vehicle and ran on foot. The Bates County Deputy deployed K9 Falco who apprehended the suspect until deputies were able to place him into handcuffs.

The suspect was then transported to the Bates County Memorial Hospital to receive treatment for a laceration he received during the original domestic in Vernon County and minor inquiries received from the dog apprehension.

While at the hospital the subject became combative with the deputy who had to physically restrain him on the floor until additional officer could arrive to assist.

The driver is identified as Joseph A Henderson 11/1/1982 of Kansas City Mo. Henderson was wanted by the US Marshals on a Federal Probation and Parole warrant for Resisting Arrest and an Unlawful Use of a Weapons charge. Henderson was booked into Bates County Jail on his no bond federal warrant. Henderson will be turned over to the US Marshals and his Bates County Charges are being forwarded to the Bates County Prosecutor.

Sheriff Anderson say, "This is a fine example of law enforcement working together across imaginary lines to take career criminals off the streets. We are proud of the great working relationship we have with the men and women of the Cass County Sheriff's Office."
