MARION, NC (WSPA) – A Burke County man was arrested in McDowell County after leading deputies on a chase when his girlfriend called 911 during a domestic dispute in a car on I-40.
35-year-old Christopher William Ogilvie is charged with second degree Kidnapping, Fleeing to Elude Arrest, Violation of a Domestic Violence Protection Order, Assault on a Female, and Possession of Methamphetamine. Ogilvie was also wanted on outstanding warrants for Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
According to deputies, Ogilvie’s girlfriend contacted 911 just before 9:30am Friday and said the two were having a domestic dispute while she was passenger in a car driven by Ogilvie.
When deputies tried to stop the car, they say Ogilvie led them on a chase at speeds of up to 90 MPH to Ridgecrest where he reportedly stopped to let his girlfriend out of the car and was taken into custody around 9:45pm.
Investigators say Ogilvie was able to dodge stop sticks deployed by Old Fort Police. Half a gram of methamphetamine was found in the car.
Ogilvie’s girlfriend had an order of protection against him in Burke County from November and a judge had ordered the two to not have any contact with each other.
Ogilvie was taken to McDowell Hospital where he was treated for injuries before being released to deputies.
