COLUMBIA — A Columbia resident was arrested Friday on several charges following a vehicle pursuit.

At about 9:42 p.m., the Boone County Sheriff's Department's Pro-Active Unit tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation near New Haven Road and Warren Drive. The vehicle's failure to stop led to a pursuit.

A sheriff's deputy was able to deflate the vehicle's tire near Rolling Hills Road and Highway WW. The vehicle went into the Arbor Falls subdivision and stopped on Bower Lane. The driver, Daniel Peek, 23, fled the vehicle and engaged in a struggle with deputies before he was taken into custody.

Peek was arrested on charges of resisting arrest and suspicion of possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, careless and imprudent driving and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle. His bond is set at $10,145.

Passenger Daria Littleton, 35, was released from the Boone County Jail but must appear before a judge on suspicion of possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
