On Thursday, June 3rd a Bates County deputy stopped a vehicle that was reportedly possibly stolen. A MULES check of the plate showed the plate that was displayed was not on file. A MULES check of the female driver showed that she had a $300 warrant out of Butler.
As the two Bates County Sheriff’s deputies made contact again with the female in an attempt to arrest her on the $300 warrant, the female took off from the traffic stop in the vehicle. As she speeds away her vehicle struck a deputy that was talking with her through the window while standing to the front of the driver’s door.
The vehicle pursuit entered Cass County on I49. The pursuit continued north until just south of Peculiar where the female turned into a crossover and started traveling northbound in the southbound lane. The vehicle eventually turned back south bound where Cass County Sheriff’s Office units were able to use the Grapple System to bring the vehicle to a stop at the weigh scales in Harrisonville.
One female was taken into custody and then transported to the Bates County Memorial Hospital for treatment for injuries she sustained from the incident. The Bates County Deputy did not receive any serious injuries during the incident.
The vehicle was towed from the scene by Southland Tow. Other assisting agencies were the Adrian Police Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Harrisonville Police Department, Harrisonville Fire Department and Central Cass County Fire Department.
Additional information will be release when it comes available from the Bates County Sheriff’s Office.
