On December 20 at 3:14 p.m., the Nampa Police Department Special Investigation Unit was attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Michael Lance Davis, 36, of Nampa. Davis was wanted for two counts of delivery of a controlled substance stemming from an ongoing investigation by the Special Investigation Unit.
Investigators located Davis driving near Southside Boulevard and East Greenhurst Road. Marked patrol units were called in to assist. When the patrol units attempted to stop Davis, he accelerated and attempted to flee. At one point, it appeared Davis tried to ram one of the marked police cars. This caused Davis to lose control and he collided with a power pole. Davis ran from the vehicle but was taken into custody after a short foot pursuit.
A Nampa Police K-9 officer deployed his drug detection dog and it alerted to the presence of illegal drugs in the vehicle Davis was driving. During the search of the vehicle officers located two loaded firearms, a bag of methamphetamine, scales, drug ledgers, and over $2000.00 in cash.
Davis was released from custody to probation in February, 2017. He was serving a prison sentence for aggravated assault and battery on certain personnel (law enforcement). In 2012, Davis was involved with an incident that led to him being shot by a Canyon County Deputy.
Davis was booked into the Canyon County Jail on the warrants and felony eluding. Further charges are pending.
