COLUMBIA — An early Monday car chase ended with four arrests when a vehicle refused to pull over for a Boone County Sheriff's Department deputy.

According to a Sheriff's Department news release, a deputy attempted to stop a vehicle shortly before 1 a.m. for a traffic violation on Vandiver Drive near U.S. 63.

The driver sped away, leading police on a pursuit until the vehicle lost control in the roundabout at Mexico Gravel Road and Ballenger Lane. The vehicle stuck a curb, bursting all four tires.

Four people then tried to run away from the crashed car. Three people were arrested nearby, and a fourth was arrested later with the help of a K-9 Unit.

Maurice Robinson, 28, of Columbia, was arrested in connection with driving the car. He is suspected of endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest, driving with a revoked license, careless and imprudent driving, property damage and speeding.

Duran Griffith, 24, and Dushane Griffith, 22, were arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest. Another passenger, a minor, was also arrested.
