The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an officer-involved shooting early Friday in Eldridge that occurred during a high-speed vehicle pursuit that ended in Davenport

The officer, who the sheriff’s office and Eldridge Police declined to name, is on paid administrative leave, per department protocol.

The driver of the vehicle, Stevey Graves, 29, of Davenport, was uninjured and taken into custody on charges of eluding, operating while under the influence- second offense, driving while barred, and several traffic violations.

The eluding charge is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison, while the OWI and driving while barred charges are an aggravated misdemeanor each punishable by up to two years in prison.

She will be arraigned on the charges Oct. 5.

Graves remained in the Scott County Jail on Friday afternoon on a $5,000 cash or surety bond. She also was being held on a $5,000 cash-only bond for a probation violation filed in a 2014 theft case.

Eldridge Police Chief David David Kopatich could not be reached for comment Friday. 

According to the arrest affidavit filed by the sheriff's office in support of the criminal complaint: 

Just after 1 a.m. Friday, an Eldridge police officer tried to initiate a traffic stop on a white Chevy Tahoe in the 900 block of West Donahue Street.

Graves, the driver, took off at a high rate of speed and was pursued by multiple officers.

She was driving more than 90 mph in a 45 mph zone on South 1st Street in Eldridge and continued on toward Davenport, where she ran red lights on Division Street and Northwest Boulevard and stop signs at East 90th and Harrison streets.

The pursuit ended in the 6400 block of Cedar Street in Davenport, where she drove the Tahoe onto the lawn of a residence, according to the affidavit. 

During the course of the incident, a shot was fired by an officer, according to a media release from the sheriff's office. No further information was released Friday afternoon.

Graves has several convictions in Scott County for driving while barred, the most recent being in 2013. She also had a conviction for operating while intoxicated the same year.

She was arrested on New Year’s Day in 2015 after police say she took cash while running a register at a local grocery store and did not ring up food items totaling $520.

She pleaded guilty in July 2015 to second-degree theft, a Class D felony, and was later sentenced to three years of probation.

Scott County prosecutors on Friday filed a petition alleging that she violated the terms of her probation. The document does not name the violation.
