KC-MO Police Officer Hurt During KC-KS Police Vehicle Pursuit

A chase of an aggravated assault suspect that began around 11:40 p.m. Saturday night ended about 40 minutes later in south KC-MO..

The chase began around 38th Street and State Avenue when an officer spotted the "white male" suspect driving south in a "tan-colored (Chevy) Suburban.

The suspect refused to stop- and continued south to Interstate 70 where he went west at speeds as high as 85-90 m.p.h..  The chase then went north on I-435 to Parallel Parkway- the back east on Parallel.

By midnight- the suspect had wound back east and got on eastbound I-70 and entered Missouri.  The chase went around the East Loop to southbound U.S. 71.

At 12:08 a.m.- a KC-MO police officer- who had thrown road spikes across southbound U.S. 71 near Swope Parkway- had the rope "yanked" from his hands when the spikes caught on the suspect's vehicle.

Several of the officer's fingers were cut- and he was taken to a Northland hospital in good condition.

The chase continues south and more road spike ("stop-sticks") are thrown in front of the suspect.  At 75th Street- at least 2 KC-MO police cars also hit the spikes and had to drop out of the chase.

At 12:15 a.m. with at least 2 of the suspect's tires flattened and shredded- he crashes near Red Bridge Road.

The man attempts to run- but is caught and detained by a police dog.

Suffering dog bites- the suspect is arrested and later treated by KC-MO FD-EMS people.
