COLUMBIA — A Columbia man was arrested after failing to stop for police Tuesday night in Boone County and fleeing to Callaway County, according to a news release from the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

Daniel L. Reese, 27, was traveling east on Route WW in Boone County. He failed to yield when a Sheriff's Department deputy tried to stop him for traffic violations, according to the news release.

The department did not confirm what alleged violations led to the attempted stop.

Reese fled into Callaway County. Deputies deployed a spike strip as he entered Fulton, which flattened one tire.   

Reese eventually stopped and was arrested east of Fulton on Route F. The car chase lasted about 20 minutes, Maj. Tom Reddin from the Boone County Sheriff's Department said.

Reese was arrested on suspicion of careless and imprudent driving, driving on a revoked license, felony resisting arrest, felony possession of cocaine and possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana, the news release said.

Officers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Boone County Sheriff’s Department, Callaway County Sheriff’s Department and Fulton Police Department were involved. Reddin said he didn't know how many official vehicles were involved in the incident.

A Boone County deputy’s patrol car sustained minor front-end damage during the chase.

Daniel L. Reese had a bond set at $10,145 and had not posted bond by Wednesday night.
