STE. GENEVIEVE CO., MO (KDKZ-TV) A Farmington man wanted on several felony charges has been arrested after a domestic disturbance in Ste. Genevieve County.

28-year-old Ethan Steele was arrested late Tuesday night by authorities in Ste. Genevieve County.

They were called out to a domestic at a residence off of Highway EE. Prior to the arrival of deputies, Steele took off on foot.  They called out the K-9 unit and tracked him down after searching for about two miles.

Ste. Genevieve County Chief Deputy Jason Schott says, “the K-9 actually apprehended him and then we took him into custody.”

Schott believes that the residence the domestic took place at was a relatives house.

He said that charges are pending against Steele.  Once those are finalized, he will be released to St. Francois County for the charges that have been already filed against him.

Steele currently has a revoked license, with three prior convictions of driving while revoked and also had three prior felony warrants through St. Francois County, two were for resisting arrest and one for felony assault.

The Farmington Police Department has submitted a report to the prosecuting attorney’s office requesting additional charges, including driving while revoked, resisting arrest and assault in the second degree on a law enforcement officer from an incident on July 7.
