      Man arrested after evading police in Maries County

      Authorities arrested a Vienna man Monday night after a chase.

      It began after a report of a disturbance involving weapons and an intoxicated person on Maries County Road 302.

      Deputies began to search for 56-year-old Jimmie McKinney, who reportedly had threatened the victim and pointed a rifle at him.

      Deputies saw McKinney driving down highway 63 at a high rate of speed, but lost sight of him.

      They later found him at his home.

      During a search there, deputies found illegal weapons, and drug paraphernalia.

      McKinney was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon, felony assault, resisting arrest, being a felon in possession of firearms, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

      McKinney, who is currently on probation, was taken to the Maries County jail.
