May 22, 2024--On May 21, at approximately 5:25 p.m., in the 3500 block of Settler Ridge Drive, the Mead Police Department, with the assistance of the Weld County Sheriff’s Office, was searching for Jordan Dale, who was known to have three felony warrants for his arrest. When Dale, age 33, was located, officers executed a traffic stop to contact him. The suspect stayed in the vehicle and drove towards the officers, allegedly hitting the Weld County patrol car as the Deputy shut his door to avoid being hit.

The Weld County Deputy began a vehicle pursuit out of the Margil neighborhood and east on WCR 38. Given the suspect's violent criminal history and alleged actions against the Weld County Deputy, Mead Police joined Weld County in the pursuit. Dale reportedly exceeded speeds of 100 mph, and due to traffic and visibility concerns, Mead Police had to discontinue their involvement in the chase.

At 5:30 p.m., the Weld County Deputy advised Weld County Emergency Communications that the suspect had crashed the vehicle and fled on foot. Jordan Dale was ultimately bitten by a Weld County K9 and taken into custody. Officers with the Mead Police Department responded to the crash site in the 15400 block of WCR 19. Because the initial incident occurred in the Town of Mead and the Weld County Deputy may be considered a victim, the Mead Police Department is leading the investigation.

Jordan Dale was first taken to the hospital after being bitten by a K9 and then transported to the Weld County Jail. Dale is facing charges of Menacing, Vehicular Eluding, Obstruction of a Peace Officer, Reckless Driving, Habitual Traffic Offender, 3rd Degree Trespass, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Mead Police Department at 720.652.4222 or email police [at]
