BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A Biloxi man was arrested Labor Day afternoon after he allegedly punched a woman in the face then lead police on a chase, according to Biloxi Police Investigator Steve Schlicht.

Schlicht said 37-year-old Noel Allan Dedmon faces charges of felony eluding a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor domestic assault.

Police learned of Dedmon after receiving a report about a domestic situation at the 7000 block of Woolmarket Road. That's where witnesses told police Dedmon hit a woman in the face with a closed fist then fled in a Chevrolet Tahoe. When police arrived at the scene they found the victim with an eye injury, Schlicht said.

Later, Schlicht said the suspect came back to the scene driving past it. Biloxi police then tried stopping Dedmon by turning on their blue lights, however, he reportedly kept driving down Woolmarket Road.

He headed south towards Shriner's Boulevard, all the way to the westbound off ramp. Schlicht said at one point he was driving on the wrong side of the road until he eventually crashed into a ditch.

Once his vehicle crashed, Schlicht said Dedmon fled into a wooded area leaving behind his pitbulls and a mixed breed dog in the Tahoe.

He was eventually arrested and taken to Harrison County Jail. His bond was set at $50,000.

Dedmon was also wanted for a grand larceny charge in Jackson County and on parole for a felony charge in Jackson.
