An Ogden man was arrested Sunday after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in Jefferson, including blackening her eye and repeatedly striking her vehicle with his vehicle.
Mark Douglas Haase, 34, of 525 N.E. Fourth St., Ogden, was arrested Sunday on a Boone County warrant for probation violation.
In addition, the Jefferson Police Department has “applied for two warrants” for second-offense domestic abuse assault-bodily injury or mental illness in Greene County District Court.
The incident began shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday, when a woman reported to the Jefferson Police Department “that she was driving around the Jefferson Square and her boyfriend was chasing her in his vehicle,” according to the police report.
The victim said Haase that “had struck the rear of her vehicle numerous times, trying to get her to stop.” During an interview, the officer determined that Haase “had assaulted’ the victim “twice prior to this event,” according to the police report.
According to a Second Judicial District parole officer, Haase allegedly “removed his GPS bracelet” and “left it by the side of the road” about 3 a.m. Saturday “following his girlfriend’s appearing at the Greene County Law Enforcement Center with a black eye.”
The bracelet was found “pinging near Cedar and McKinley Streets” about 7:45 a.m. Saturday and retrieved by the Jefferson Police Department.
At about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, a caller to the Jefferson Police Department said Haase was inside a residence at 513 N. Olive St. in Jefferson. Jefferson Police Department Officers and Greene County Deputy Sheriffs were admitted to the residence, and they found Haase “in an upstairs bedroom, hiding in a compartment underneath a bed,” according to the police report.
Hasse is held in the Boone County Jail while awaiting a parole board hearing.
Haase was convicted of controlled substance violation and failure to affix drug stamp in 2017 in Boone County District Court. He was arrested on a charge of parole violation in March after he allegedly “admitted to the recent use of methamphetamine” and “engaged in assaultive behaviors toward a female companion,” according to a Second Judicial District parole officer. The case is pending in Boone County District Court.
