CARROLLTON, MO – A trial by jury was scheduled in Carroll County court Monday.

A change of venue was received by the court in April. According to a probable cause statement, Lawson Police attempted to arrest Patrick T. Smith, who resisted and ran from officers. Officers pursued Smith on foot and using a patrol car. When an officer got out of his vehicle to continue the pursuit, Smith stole the patrol vehicle. Smith later hit another vehicle and kept driving. He was arrested and charged with felonies for resisting arrest, property damage, tampering with a motor vehicle as well as three misdemeanor charges.

The jury trial is tentatively set for January 16.
