Chalie Malzahn (pictured), 27, was placed back into custody just two days after being bailed out of jail by a friend
A kindergarten teacher from Arizona has gone missing after bailing out a friend with a criminal history.
Police say that Cathryn Gorospe, 44, vanished Friday evening after posting bond for Chalie Malzahn at Coconino County Jail in Flagstaff, Arizona, who was being held on theft and gun charges.
He was placed back into custody just two days later after leading police on a car chase following an alleged string of crimes.
Malzahn is now being additionally charged with unlawful flight, resisting arrest and aggravated assault, according to The New York Post.
The assault count is believed to have stemmed from an incident against a female student on the campus of Arizona State University earlier in the evening, The Arizona Republic reported.
Police say they were able to track Malzahn down driving Gorospe’s white Toyota Rav4 just hours later.

Malzahn, attempting to flee, crashed the vehicle and was placed under arrest.
According to Gorospe’s roommate, the teacher was due to meet the 27-year-old for dinner after being released from jail.
Authorities were notified of Gorospe’s disappearance the next day after she failed to return home.
An acquaintance of Malzahn claims the the suspect was Gorospe’s car, which was covered in blood, the night of her disappearance
Law enforcement officials say they have questioned Malzahn on Gorospe’s disappearance, who maintains that he is unaware of her whereabouts.
‘We fear harm has come to her,’ Flagstaff Police Sgt. Cory Runge said in a statement.
Police say that one day after her disappearance, Malzahn bought items with Gorospe’s credit cards at the local mall.
Later on Saturday, Malzahn allegedly drove Gorospe’s car to met an acquaintance to buy drugs and a gun.
Upon questioning, the acquaintance told police that there was blood covering the inside of Gorospe’s vehicle.
Malzahn criminal history extends back to at least 2012, when he was convicted of aggravated assault on an officer, assault and resisting arrest, the Post reported. He also plead guilty to DUI charges in March.
