KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Three people were taken into custody after a multi-county pursuit over two states.

Sugar Creek police say the incident started at 10 p.m. on Saturday when officers stopped a car for speeding and improper tags. They say the suspect gave a fake name, but officers at the scene were able to determine the driver was unlicensed, had a felony warrant and several misdemeanors.

When asked to leave the vehicle, the suspect took off, and according to police, the car bumped an officer who was standing next to the vehicle at the time.

According to the Northmoor Police Department's Facebook page, the chase continued into Kansas City, Mo., then headed into Northmoor on I-29. The suspect continued south onto I-635 into Kansas, where a KCPD helicopter kept sight of the vehicle.

When the vehicle returned to Missouri on I-635, Riverside police officers deployed spike strips. Authorities say the suspect continued into Northmoor on I-29, then proceeded into North Kansas City where the vehicle lost its front tire.

The pursuit came to an end just before 11 p.m. at Quiktrip on Burlington Street when the vehicle crashed into a parked car.

All three of the vehicle's occupants were taken into custody. Sugar Creek took custody of the driver. The driver is facing pending felony charges. The other occupants were released from the scene.
