DAVENPORT — Three men were arrested Wednesday in the Village of East Davenport after fleeing when police stopped their car at a gas station.

Davenport police said officers stopped Trashun Rondell Hickman, 19, at the Kwik Shop at the corner of Jersey Ridge Road and Kirkwood Boulevard for a broken tail light about 5:45 p.m.

Mr. Hickman and two passengers, Carlos Andre Maxfield Jr., 18, and Nathan Allen Stewart, 20, fled the car on foot east toward the village, police said. No addresses were available for the men.

Police said they apprehended the three men within 15 minutes. Police also searched the car and found nothing, they said.

Mr. Hickman is charged with driving under suspension, driving with no insurance, interfering with official acts, defective brakes, defective tires and stopping on a travelway. He was being held on a $1,800 bond at Scott County Jail on Wednesday night.

Mr. Maxfield and Mr. Stewart are both charged with misdemeanor interfering with official acts. A Davenport officer who wished not to be identified said the two would not have been charged had they remained in the car.
