RANDOLPH COUNTY - The Moberly Police Department received a tip about a stolen vehicle at approximately 6:50 p.m. Saturday. The owner of the vehicle saw it turn south onto U.S. 63 from U.S. 24.

The gold 2003 Jeep Wrangler was reported stolen from the 700 block of Wilman Drive on September 6. According to Moberly police, the suspect is Ryan Eugene Boyd, 18, of Moberly.

A Moberly officer on patrol near the intersection of Route M and U.S. 63 observed the vehicle turning westbound from U.S. 63 onto Route M. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver accelerated and failed to yield.

The vehicle continued driving erratically and at high speeds through side streets in the central, western and northern portions of the city. At one point during the pursuit, Boyd swerved toward a marked Moberly police unit occupied by two officers. The driving officer had to go off the roadway and into a ditch to avoid being struck head-on by the suspect. At another point, Boyd almost collided with a marked Missouri State Highway Patrol vehicle.

Approximately 20 minutes after officers initially attempted to stop the vehicle, Boyd attempted to turn north onto College Avenue from Rollins Street in Columbia and collided with a parked vehicle. He then continued onto the property of Moberly Area Community College where the vehicle collided with a light post. Boyd jumped from the vehicle and began fleeing on foot. A Randolph County Deputy Sheriff had stopped their patrol unit on the street behind the suspect vehicle, when the suspect vehicle began rolling backward and collided with the sheriff's patrol car.

Police caught Boyd during the foot pursuit and took him into custody. Boyd was complaining of pain from a prior shoulder injury that had been exacerbated during his flight and subsequent. He was transported to Moberly Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.

One Moberly officer was injured during the foot pursuit when he fell down a hill and injured his back. The officer also sought treatment at MRMC and is expected to make a full recovery.

Police charged Boyd with four counts of Assault of Law Enforcement Officer 1st degree, four counts Armed Criminal Action, Tampering with Motor Vehicle 1st degree, Felony Resisting Arrest and No Valid Operator License. Bond has been set $100,000.00 cash only. Police also issued a Randolph County Probation Violation warrant for Boyd. He was unable to post bond and was transferred to the Randolph County Justice Center.
