Chase Arrest

A St. Joseph man is arrested after that SUV chase we first told you about yesterday.

Authorities say 37 year old Christopher Schmidt is being held on drug and other charges after the chase which started in Burlington Junction Missouri. The Nodaway County Sheriff's Office gave chase after the Hyundai Santa Fe was reported stolen there. The suspect drove north into Freemont County, Iowa, where a Sheriff's deputy fired a shot as the suspect allegedly tried to run him over. Officers lost track of the SUV, but later found it crashed and on fire. Authorities say besides Schmidt, another suspect believed to have been in the vehicle remains at large.
