A suspected car thief is taken into custody after twisting his ankle in a creek bed.
A chase that began around 3am Sunday in Dickinson County ended in Saline County after a deputy used spike strips at K-4 and Old 81 Highway to disable a stolen car.
Saline County Sheriff-elect Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that a Chevy Camaro was reported stolen in Morris County. Deputies from Dickinson County followed the speeding car as it headed westbound on Magnolia.
The chase ended a short time later when the car driven by 45-year-old Steven Fuller ran over spikes that were deployed, flattening all four tires.
Deputies say Fuller jumped out of the Camaro near McReynolds Road and was arrested after twisting an ankle in a creek bed.
He is now facing charges for theft and flee and eluding law enforcement.
