Mason City police say McFarland escaped arrest on December 4, 2019, after slamming his car door on an officer’s hands, crashing into another vehicle and a tree, then finally abandoning his vehicle and running away.

The Worth County Sheriff’s Office says McFarland then the passenger and Veal the driver of a vehicle pulled over around 1:40 am on December 8. Deputies say a small amount of marijuana and a drug pipe were found in the vehicle and McFarland gave them a false name and birth date to try and hide his identity.

McFarland’s trial is set to begin on February 25. Veal is scheduled to stand trial starting on April 1.
