St Charles County Man Charged in High Speed Chase
A man who sped away from a Missouri Highway patrolman who was trying to pull him over for speeding has been charged with felony assault on a police officer and driving while intoxicated. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on December 10 that the car reached up to 110 MPH while the chase was going on. The man eventually stopped and ran from the vehicle but was caught and arrested near his home.
The man was fleeing because he had an outstanding warrant for another high speed chase and had not been meeting with his parole officer for over two years. This dangerous action could have injured many innocent people and the driver could also have caused serious injury to the policeman giving chase or other officers on the scene.
