PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department said it began Monday afternoon when deputies were called to a store in the 12000 block of North Trico Road.

"When deputies arrived, they encountered a male and female arguing inside a car," the PCSD said in a news release. "The female got out of the car, and in an attempt to flee the area, the male side-swiped a Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicle. A short pursuit ensued which was ultimately terminated due to safety concerns."

The PCSD said the driver of the vehicle was identified as John Lackey, 41.

Around 9 a.m. Thursday, authorities went to a home in the 17000 block of West Redrock Lane to look for Lackey.

Lackey was not home but authorities said they found 25-year-old Poleman Hayter, who had active warrants, including a probation violation for domestic violence.

"Hayter brandished a weapon and barricaded himself inside the home," the PCSD said. "After over an hour of negotiation, Hayter was taken into custody without any injuries to anyone involved."

Lackey was arrested two hours later after he was spotted at a home in the 11000 block of North Carbine Road.

The PCSD said Lacey arrested after fleeing fled to a desert area.

In addition to the warrants, Lackey is facing charges of domestic violence assault, unlawful flight, criminal damage, hit-and-run driving, driving with a suspended license.
