When officers arrived they located the suspect Dalmetrius Hampton, 35, of Russellville, in front of Sonic.

Hampton is being charged with two counts of wanton endangerment 1st degree, receiving stolen property/firearm, and fleeing and evading (on foot) 2nd degree. He is lodged in the Logan County Detention Center.
