COLUMBIA — A Columbia man was arrested after a pursuit through the city early Wednesday, according to a release from the Boone Country Sheriff’s Department. 

No one was injured during the pursuit.

According to the release, Darious Lucas, 19, was arrested on suspicion of resisting lawful detention, leaving the scene of an accident, driving while suspended, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and careless and imprudent driving.

A Boone County deputy tried to pull over a driver for traffic violations at 1:48 a.m. Wednesday on Rock Quarry Road near Capen Park Drive, the release said. The car was chased through Columbia, including parts of Old 63, Business Loop 70 East, Keene Street, East Broadway and Clark Lane.

The driver abandoned the car after it struck a utility box and a parked vehicle in the 1600 block of Hanover Boulevard. After a short foot chase the suspect was seen entering the front door of a duplex on Cocoa Court, the release stated. Deputies found Lucas in a bedroom. He is related to the resident of the duplex, the release said.

The Columbia Police Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol helped with the pursuit and arrest.

The passenger of the car was interviewed and released. Lucas was transported to the Boone County Jail. He posted $11,000 bond at around 7 a.m. Wednesday, Maj. Tom Reddin of the Sheriff’s Department said.
