Knox County Fugitive Apprehended by Scotland County Authorities

A day after being released on his own personal recognizance, a Knox County man was back in hot water with local authorities, before ultimately being apprehended in Downing by Scotland County authorities.

Hap Robert Howland, 39, was released May 31st from the Adair County Detention Center, where he had been held since May 3rd following his arrest in Edina regarding a domestic dispute and standoff with Knox County authorities.

According to the Edina Sentinel, Howland barricaded himself inside his Edina home when authorities arrived to investigate a May 3rd incident that left Kirsten Hansen hospitalized.

He was charged with domestic assault in the 2nd degree, a class C felony, as well as burglary in the first degree, a class B felony, theft of any credit card or letter of credit, a class C felony, resisting arrest, a class D felony, and property damage in the second degree, a class B misdemeanor.

He was released on May 31st. According to court documents, Howland was allegedly a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a traffic accident near Brashear.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol arrest report indicated that Hansen, 31, was the driver of the vehicle. She was ticketed for driving while intoxicated.

Part of Howland's release conditions included no contact with Hansen, the alleged victim in the May 3rd incident.

Judge William Alberty revoked the personal recognizance order, and reinstated the $25,000 cash only bond, issuing an arrest warrant for Howland on June 1st.

Authorities began searching for Howland in Knox County, before a tip was received that evening that the suspect had been sighted in Memphis.

Howland was ultimately apprehended by an officer of the Scotland County Sheriff's Department following a traffic stop in Downing.

He was transported by the Knox County Sheriff's Department to Kirksville where he is being held in the Adair County Detention Center.
