Detectives from the Pima County Sheriff's Department have arrested two fugitives wanted for domestic violence, according to a news release.

Deputies say on Monday they responded to reports of a domestic violence incident at the Dollar General located at 12355 North Trico Road. 

As deputies arrived, they found a man and woman arguing inside a car. The woman got out of the car and in an attempt to flee the area, the man side-swiped a Sheriff's Department patrol vehicle. 

Deputies engaged in a short pursuit before it was terminated because of safety concerns.

The driver was later identified as 41-year-old John Lackey.

Deputies say on Thursday at 9 a.m. detectives with Fugitive Investigative Strike Team responded to a residence in the 17000 block of West Redrock Lane in an attempt to locate Lackey. 

As detectives arrived, they found one of Lackey's associates, 25-year-old Poleman Hayter. 

Hayter had warrants for his arrest, including a probation violation for domestic violence. 

Deputies say Hayter brandished a weapon and barricaded himself inside his home. After an hour of negotiation, detectives along with patrol unites were able to talk Hayter out of the home.

Hayter was taken into custody without any injuries to anyone involved. He was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Complex for his warrants. 

At 11 a.m. on Thursday deputies received new information that indicated Lackey had been spotted at a residence in the 11000 block of North Carbine Road. 

FIST detectives along with canine units, patrol units, and a detective with the Pima County Attorney's Office responded to the residence. 

As the multiple units arrived, Lackey fled on foot eastbound into the desert area. 

The responding units worked together to apprehend Lackey. He was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Complex for his warrants. 

Lackey was also charged with Domestic Violence Assault, Unlawful Flight, Criminal Damage, Hit-and-Run, and Driving on a Suspended License in relation to Monday's incident.
