Davenport police and Scott County Sheriff's deputies arrested Rees Bennett, 24, at the Buffalo City Park around 8 a.m. Thursday, but they began tracking him since the domestic dispute call came in around 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The man had left the scene, but was later tracked down by police in Milan. That led to a car chase, which then led to a chase on foot. Scott County deputies were able to track him down to his workplace at Blackhawk Fleet in Buffalo. He ran off into the park, where he was arrested.

"They were able to track some phone calls that he was making. They determined he was going to try and contact his employer in the morning. They were there at this work waiting to see if he was going to make contact, which he did," said Lt. Tim Lane, Scott County Sheriff's Office.

He was taken by ambulance to Genesis East for undisclosed injuries.

He's facing charges in both Scott and Rock Island counties for fleeing from police. In Scott County, Bennett's charged with speeding, violating a protective order, no insurance, no registration and driving while suspended.

Bennett was released that same day on bond.
