Suspect In Twin Falls Shooting/Hostage Ordeal Makes First Court Appearance

The man who police say was responsible for a chase, shootout, and hostage situation last Friday in Twin Falls, has been arraigned in a Twin Falls County courtroom.

The Times News reports that 26 year old Clark J. Cleveland of Spring Creek, Nev., allegedly fired “several” shots at Idaho State Police Trooper Nicholas Walker, Friday morning, hitting him once in the leg. Walker was sent to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls with a non-life-threatening injury. He left the hospital sometime over the weekend.. Cleveland has been charged with aggravated battery on a police officer, enhanced with a weapons charge. He is also charged with felony eluding a police officer.

Prosecutors said in the affidavit that a pipe with “drug residue” and a shotgun was found in the truck that Cleveland was driving. 43 year old Tracy L. Ivie, of Lindon, Utah, was shot and killed in the standoff, but Cleveland has not been formally charged for Ivie’s death. Prosecutors could announce more charges at a later date. Cleveland is believed to be the only person who fired a weapon during Friday’s incident.

During his arraignment this morning, Cleveland said only “yes” and “no”. Cleveland told investigators during an interview that he didn’t remember what happened during the incident. One other item to come out of the arraignment, Cleveland’s passenger during the high speed chase has been identified as Kyle Moon. Bond for Cleveland has been set at $2 million, and at $500,000 for violating the probation for a DUI conviction he was sentenced for two weeks ago.
