One of the three men who lead police on a multi-county chase on Highway 36 was sentenced on Thursday.
As reported by Regional Radio in July 2019:
Missouri Highway Patrol Troop B contacted Troop H at 7 a.m. Sunday, July 21 that three stolen vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed west on Highway 36.
After a spike strip was dropped, the first vehicle was stopped. The suspect fled on foot but was apprehended. The two remaining drivers continued to be pursued, turning south on I-35 in Cameron.
At Mile Marker 48, the two remaining suspects attempted to exit. The first of the two was driven by 23-year-old Jajuan L. Coleman. He crashed and attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended by the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Coleman was arrested for tampering with a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident. He was also cited for a felony charge of resisting arrest creating a substantial risk of injury or death.
On Thursday, Russell Reed pleaded guilty in Division One of Clinton County Circuit Court this week to felony resisting arrest, detention, or stop by fleeing. He is sentenced to three years in the Missouri Department of Corrections.
Coleman faces felony charges of first degree tampering with a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage exceeding $1,000, resisting arrest, detention, or stop by fleeing, and the misdemeanors of operating a motor vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner involving an accident, exceeding the posted speed limit, and operating a vehicle on a highway without a valid license.
Coleman is scheduled for a hearing in the Associate Division of Clinton County Circuit Court on November 5, 2019.
