On Monday, October 1, 2018, at approximately 7:07 am, the Cole County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 200 block of Route T for a domestic. The individuals involved were in a physical confrontation Saturday night, but we were unable to locate the male suspect. We had, not only, an active exparte order for this subject, but also a 96 hour mental commitment and probable cause to arrest for domestic violence. He had been continuing to harass the female victim since the incident until we were finally able to locate his vehicle in the area at approximately 7:23 am this morning.
The responding deputy initiated a vehicle stop in the 100 block of Route D and the subject failed to yield. He continued east on Highway 50 to Highway 179. The subject exited onto Highway 179 where a MSHP Trooper was able to spike the front right tire. The vehicle then struck a car (no injuries) while escaping north on Highway 179 to Country Club. The pursuit continued on Country Club to Business 50 West and right onto Route T. The subject went off Route T, driving through yards in the 200 block of Route T. He crossed West Forest Court and wrecked his vehicle in the 200 block of Verdant Lane. The subject then ran to the 100 block of Traci Drive where he was apprehended by pursuing deputies. The pursuit lasted nine (9) minutes with speeds that, at times, reached up to approximately 90 MPH and resulted with one in custody and no injuries.
The subject was taken to the Cole County Jail with the following charges; Domestic 4th, DWR, Felony Resisting, Felony Leaving the Scene of an accident and various other traffic offenses. He was also served the exparte order and 96 hour mental commitment.
The Cole County Sheriff’s Department would like to thank the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Jefferson City Police Department for their assistance.
