KSAL StaffMay 11, 2020

An argument about money owed between two adult siblings ends after a slow speed pursuit and an arrest.

Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that 22-year-old Damarqus Harden was taken into custody after he allegedly threw a brick and hit his sister’s car on Saturday afternoon in the 1900 block of Glendale , shattering the rear window of her 2013 Kia Sportage.

Police say Harden then drove around corner in his 2010 Ford F-150 and struck her vehicle’s side mirror causing more damage.

A short time later a Saline County Sheriff’s deputy spotted the pickup at the Kwik Shop at 2003 S. Ohio and attempted to make a stop. Police say Harden was driving about 35-40 mph as he wound his way to the intersection near Magnolia and Huntington and stopped short of spike strips that were deployed by law enforcement.

Harden is facing multiple charges in the case that could include 2 counts of aggravated endangerment of a child because his two young nephews were in the Kia when he struck the mirror. He is also facing speeding and felony flee and elude charges as well. No one involved in the incidents were hurt.
