A Cedar Springs man is facing multiple felony charges after failing to appear in court on a previous charge.Daryl John Magoon, 21, of Cedar Springs, failed to appear in court on an aggravated assault charge after an incident on March 30. He had reportedly pushed another man off a porch at a home on Sarah Street, causing a shoulder injury.

According to Cedar Springs Police Chief Roger Parent, Cedar Springs Police were aware that a warrant had been issued for him after his failure to appear on the charge. While on patrol May 30, Officer Chad Tucker spotted Magoon outside, so he stopped to check his computer to see if the warrant was still valid. Turning to do something on the computer gave Magoon a split second to turn and run and he avoided being arrested at that time.

Later that same evening, both officers Paul Feutz and Chad Tucker were sent to the 300 block of Sarah Street to investigate a large group arguing and standing in the street. Upon arrival, Officer Feutz saw Magoon and once again officers gave chase on foot through the Cedar Springs Mobile Estates.

Magoon was seen crawling under a mobile home and was ordered to come out.  After exiting he continued to swear at the officers who were ready with the TASER if needed. He was then taken into custody. Once secured in the rear seat of the police cruiser, Magoon began kicking the rear door causing damage.  Officer Tucker was treated at the scene for scrapes and abrasions after falling during the foot chase on loose gravel.According to 63rd District Court records, Magoon was charged and arraigned on two new felony charges as a result of the incident—resisting arrest and malicious destruction of property. Bond was set at $1,000 and a preliminary hearing was set for June 10 at 1:30 p.m.

The judge continued the bond on the previous assault charge of $500 cash, and set pretrial for the same date, June at 1:30 p.m.

Magoon also faces sentencing later this month on a larceny charge. In that incident, he was charged with stealing a cell phone from the same address on Sarah Street on April 8. Witnesses provided information against him, and the prosecutor issued a warrant in the case. The original charge was larceny in a building and he pled down to larceny over $200 but less than $1,000 last month. Magoon will be sentenced on that charge on June 22 at 10 a.m.
