CAMDENTON, Mo.– A man from Camdenton is jailed after he allegedly assaulted his wife and rammed a deputy patrol car while attempting to evade authorities.

35-year-old Daniel Gaines is accused of hitting his wife in the face and choking her on Monday night. Deputies got a 911 call at 10:20 p.m. Monday about the domestic disturbance off Hidden Drive in Camdenton but Gaines had left the scene before police arrived.

Deputies located the man near Highway 54 and the North Highway 5 exit, according to a press release.

Deputies with the Camden County Sheriff’s Department briefly stopped Gaines’ red 2010 F-150 truck around 11:53 p.m. before he sped off quickly.

One deputy attempted to pass Gaines during the case. Gaines rammed the patrol car numerous times on the dry gap bridge prior to the Niangua Bridge, eventually disabling the patrol vehicle. He then continued driving to towards his home, through a ditch which eventually brought the chase to an end.

Gaines then began to, as the press release states, “advance(d) on the deputies at which time a deputy’s taser was deployed.”

He was taken into custody and charged with first-degree assault, domestic assault, property damage, resisting arrest, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Gaines is being held without bond in Camden County Jail.
