Driver with 4 flat tires leads police on chase in Kansas and Missouri

A motorist driving on four flat tires led police on a two-hour pursuit in parts of Kansas and Missouri before his arrest. The chase began early Thursday in northeast Kansas' Atchison County when officers attempted to stop a pickup truck on a warrant with several felony violations.
Police say the suspect later drove into neighboring Missouri, through St. Joseph and toward Savannah. St. Joseph police laid a spike strip that blew out all four tires of the suspect's vehicle. Police say the pursuit ended in Savannah, where the vehicle veered into a ditch. Officers found drugs and three loaded weapons in the vehicle.

The suspect was taken to a hospital because officers believe he ingested several grams of methamphetamine prior to the arrest. Police say the suspect will be jailed after his hospital evaluation.
