On Wednesday December 20th, Nampa Police were trying to serve an arrest warrant on Michael Lance Davis, 36, of Nampa.  According to police they located Davis driving near Southside Boulevard and East Greenhurst Road and when they attempted to pull him over he took off.

Davis tried to ram one of the pursing police car then lost control and slammed into a power pole, said police. After a short chase on foot he was arrested and booked into the Canyon County Jail.
