County issues arrest warrant for man involved in high speed chase May 19 PDF Print E-mail

After a high speed chase on a rainy Sunday afternoon in late May, and a double arrest, one of the men is now the subject of a warrant from the Chase County Attorney’s Office.
Kody Huff, 25, and Boone Huff, 22, were arrested after the May 19 chase, when the younger brother admitted to being  the driver of the 2001 Chevy Blazer.
But since that time, County Attorney Arlan Wine said the brothers switched their stories, both saying Kody Huff was the driver.
Wine said, with both making that admission, Kody Huff was then charged with child endangerment, operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest, driving during suspension, willful reckless driving, stop sign violation and possession of drug paraphernalia.
After both bonded out of jail, Kody Huff then failed to appear for a June 12 arraignment in county court, Wine said.
The arrest warrant was then issued. County Sheriff Kevin Mueller said the warrant information has been entered into the national database, so if Huff is stopped by law officers elsewhere, it will indicate he is wanted in Chase County.  
After his May arrest, it was discovered that Kody Huff had also failed to appear on a DUI court date in 2011.
Wine said the younger Boone Huff, originally charged with the multiple offenses, pled guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and paid a fine.
A female passenger in the car, Brenna Hernandez, 23, was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and requested a trial. An Aug. 14 trial in county court has been set, Wine said.
