On Sunday night, a Pettis County Deputy attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle for careless and imprudent driving.

The driver began to accelerate away from the Deputy at a high rate of speed westbound out of the Sedalia City Limits. The vehicle hit speeds in excess of 120 MPH, running two stop signs in the process.

Deputies pursued the driver into Johnson County, where they eventually exited onto Highway 23. Deputies briefly lost sight of the suspect before spotting them on Irish Lane, parallel to US 50 Highway.

The vehicle was eventually stopped in the area of Angus Lane and 6th Street Court in Knob Noster.

Tristan Smith was arrested for Resisting Arrest by Fleeing (Creating Substantial Risk). Smith was transported back to the Pettis County Jail to be placed on a 24-hour hold.
