Deputies and Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers were made aware early Sunday morning of a careless driver in the area of US 65 Highway and State HWY 765.

The vehicle was described as a black Chevrolet Camaro with flames painted on the side. Deputies located the vehicle and checked its speed at 112 MPH in a posted 45 MPH zone.

Deputies and Troopers attempted to stop the vehicle, which then fled at high rates of speed, driving in the center turning lane along Highway 50. After a short pursuit, the vehicle eventually wrecked and became disabled in the area of West 3rd Street near Liberty Park. The Deputies then ordered the driver to exit the vehicle, and he did not comply.

Deputies then removed the driver from the vehicle, and as they did, several Fireball "shooters" fell from his person. The driver remained uncooperative, slurring his words. The driver refused a breathalyzer test and was acting aggressively.
