Northwest Missouri Pursuit

A suspect is recovering at the St. Joseph Hospital after leading law enforcement in a hundred mile per hour chase through Maryville, Maitland, and ending at Skidmore.

It started about 11:30 near the east side Industrial Park in Maryville, where officers noticed a vehicle reportedly stolen from DeKalb county. The suspect took off at about 85 miles per hour going west through Maryville on 1st Street and hit around a hundred miles per hour at the country club on the west side of town. Maryville Public Safety, Nodaway County Sheriff Deputies, the Highway Patrol, and even Department of Conservation gave chase, where the suspect reportedly stole another vehicle, then took off again eventually crashing into a mini-van near Skidmore. About an hour after it started, just before 12:30, reports came the suspect had been shot and was in custody about 2 miles west of Skidmore on Route DD. Nodaway County Sheriff Darren White tells KXCV News 31 year old Neil Fisher had head wounds but the medical examination shows no bullet, he might have been injured in the wreck with the van near Skidmore, those occupant's injuries aren't life threatening. A Maryville Public Safety cruiser and Highway Patrol car also T-boned during the chase, totaling both vehicles. THe officers were treated and released. Fisher served time on auto theft charges and was released from the Andrew County Jail just 3 weeks ago and is believed to have burglarized an elderly Cameron couple overnight, trying them with duck tape and stealing the original vehicle involved with this case. The elderly lady is reportedly in intensive care as a result of the alleged burglary and beating. Fisher is expected to first face charges in that case, before facing a string of charges involved in the Nodaway county chase today.
