CASS COUNTY, Mo.- Multiple agencies assisted in the apprehension of a Peculiar, Mo., man Saturday, September 23, 2017, who sent authorities on a vehicle pursuit.
Clinton M. Mills, 36, has been charged with felony resisting arrest by fleeing creating substantial risk of serious injury/death, two counts of felony second-degree assault, felony attempted escape from custody, driving while revoked and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to a report, at around 1:00 p.m., Cass County deputies assisted the Harrisonville Police Department with a vehicle pursuit of a black 1989 Chevy S-10 that began in the area of Eastwood and Route 2.
As the pursuit traveled east of Harrisonville, deputies and troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol attempted to stop the vehicle using tire deflation devices but were unsuccessful. Mills ultimately lost control of his vehicle at the intersection of S. Route W and E. 335th, in rural Archie, Mo., and fled on foot. He was quickly apprehended by Cass County Sheriff’s Office K9 and taken into custody.
One deputy was treated for a leg injury at a local hospital and Mills was transported to an area hospital for treatment as well. While receiving treatment Mills attempted to escape and allegedly assaulted a deputy.
Mills is currently in custody at the Cass County Jail and is being held on a $50,000 cash-only bond. An arraignment took place yesterday, September 26, 2017, in Cass County Circuit Court and a case review was scheduled for November 16, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.
