PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A 46-year-old man wanted in three states was captured in southwest Missouri after a chase that included two car thefts and ramming a sheriff’s car.
Authorities say Douglas Brown is wanted in South Carolina, Ohio and Louisiana for charges including burglary, assault and theft of weapons. Brown was charged Wednesday in McDonald County with tampering with a motor vehicle. Online court records don’t list his lawyer.
The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/N7KIYb ) the chase began Tuesday near Noel when Brown refused to pull over for a traffic stop. McDonald County authorities pursued him into Oklahoma and then back into Missouri.
He was finally arrested after Missouri State Highway Patrol officers chased him to Southwest City, where he hid behind a home.
Brown’s being held in McDonald County on $2,500 bond.
