A US Marshals Task Force attempted to arrest 31-year-old Wyatt Henderson of Topeka in the the 3800 block of SW Nottingham Road.  Henderson was wanted for outstanding felony warrants.  Henderson was sitting in the driver’s seat of a 2006 Pontiac Torrent parked in the driveway of a residence.  The Task Force attempted to block the Pontiac with their state parole vehicle.  The Pontiac rammed the state parole vehicle and fled the area.  A Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office deputy, who is assigned to the Task Force, was assisting with the arrest and pursued the Pontiac.  The pursuit lasted a few blocks until Mr. Henderson lost control of his vehicle and struck a tree in the 3800 block of SW Worwick Town Rd.
