      Man leads police on chase down Highway 50

      Daniel Brown was arrested in Jefferson City after leading law enforcement officers on a chase that began in Tipton.

      Police arrested a man for stealing a car and leading them on a high-speed chase on Highway 50 Thursday afternoon.

      According to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Paul Reinsch, the incident started with reports of a stolen vehicle in Tipton around 4 p.m. Moniteau County deputies tried to pull over the vehicle heading eastbound on Highway 50 and a chase pursued.

      When the car entered Cole County, MHSP troopers deployed spikes and all four tires were punctured. The driver, 33-year-old Daniel Brown, led police to his residence in Jefferson City where he attempted to steal another nearby car and flee again.

      The Jefferson City Police Department's K-9 took Brown down until officers could take him into custody. His mother, 54-year-old Patti Bowers attempted to assault the K-9 and was arrested for interfering with an arrest.

      Brown was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment before being taken to the Cole County Jail. He is facing charges of tampering with a motor vehicle, resisting arrest by fleeing and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
