Mason City man breaks no-contact order multiple times, flees into woods to avoid cops

MASON CITY – A Mason City man desperately tried to avoid arrest, but police were too quick and he was brought to jail for breaking a no-contact order.

On Jan 21, 2017, at approximately 5:06 PM, a Mason City police officer attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Randin Johnson near 13th and North Elm Drive. Johnson allegedly parked his vehicle and immediately fled on foot westbound. Officers chased and/or followed Johnson through woods and neighborhoods until they were able to take him in to custody in the 1300 block of North President. That day, Johnson had a valid arrest warrant for violation of a no-contact order that reportedly occurred on January 6, 2017. He was charged with a new count of violation of a no contact order (NCO) for allegedly violating the NCO prior to the officer trying to stop him on Jan 21.

Johnson was charged with Interference with Official Acts, Driving while Barred, and No Insurance for his actions following the traffic stop. Johnson was jailed on the charges.

The protected party was not harmed.

Johnson had been arrested on January 5, 2017 by MCPD for violating the same NCO.
