On December 28, 2019, at 5:52 PM, Callaway County Sheriff’s Office deputies were notified of a Boone County vehicle pursuit entering Callaway County on State Road WW west of Millersburg. Callaway County deputies continued to receive updates as the pursuit continued through Millersburg, continuing on State Road F toward Fulton. A Callaway County Sheriff’s Office K9 unit subsequently set tire deflation devices on State Road F near State Road KK, which the suspect vehicle swerved to avoid. Boone and Callaway County deputies continued pursuit thereafter. As the suspect vehicle neared Fulton on State Road F, officers from the Fulton Police Department assisted. The suspect vehicle ultimately drove off the roadway into a field in the 4800 block of State Road F near the Fulton city limits. Ultimately, at 6:04 PM, deputies and officers were able to take all three vehicle occupants into custody. Those subjects were transferred to the custody of the Boone County Sheriff’s Office for return to Boone County.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office will release further information, when appropriate, as to charges and arrest information.
There is no ongoing threat to community/public safety reference this incident.
