A Leavenworth man has pleaded no contest to burglary, battery and multiple other charges for an incident that resulted in a police chase in Lansing, according to the Leavenworth County attorney.
Da'More Goodwin, 19, entered the plea Friday in Leavenworth County District Court. He pleaded no contest to one count of aggravated burglary, three counts of reckless aggravated battery, one count of fleeing and eluding police, one count of interference with law enforcement and one count of criminal damage to property. The last count is a misdemeanor. The other charges are felonies, according to information from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson.
The charges stemmed from a Nov. 13 incident. A Lansing officer had attempted to stop Goodwin, who reportedly was driving 84 mph in a 50 mph zone. Goodwin accelerated and ran through intersections with the vehicle and passed other cars.
He eventually made a sharp turn onto 147th Street, where he collided with another vehicle that was occupied by three people, according to Thompson.
Goodwin then ran from his vehicle to the back door of a nearby residence and was pursued on foot by the officer. Goodwin kicked in the door and ran inside the home, which was occupied at the time.
