  • A multi-county pursuit involving the Missouri State Highway Patrol ended early Tuesday afternoon in Shelby County with the arrest of a Wright City man.
    According to the highway patrol, the incident started around 9:30 a.m. on I-70 near the Montgomery and Warren County line when troopers recognized the driver of a car as Daremiah Lajai Gibson, 30, of Wright City, who had several active felony warrants for his arrest.
    As the pursuit neared the Montgomery City exit, troopers saw a small child in the vehicle and they ceased their ground pursuit. A Missouri State Highway Patrol aircraft in the area continued to follow the car on westbound I-70. A short time later, the vehicle stopped and an adult female and small child exited it.
    When troopers again attempted to stop the car another pursuit ensued. According to the patrol, several attempts were made to stop the car with spike strips on I-70. The vehicle exited I-70 at the Lake of the Woods exit and turned onto several outer roads, eventually leading back to U.S. 63 where it continued northbound. The Missouri State Highway Patrol aircraft continued to follow the vehicle into Randolph, Macon and Shelby counties.
    In Shelby County, the vehicle traveled onto county roads where it eventually ran out of gas on County Road 315, near Missouri Route MM. The aircraft pilot advised troopers of the vehicle’s location and they subsequently took the driver into custody without further incident at 12:10 p.m.
    Gibson was taken into custody for a felony probation and parole warrant; felony Warren County warrant for fraud; felony Lincoln County warrant for bad checks; and Franklin County warrant for driving while revoked. Various traffic charges are pending.
    At last report Gibson was being held at the Shelby County Jail.
