ASHLAND - A man was arrested after a car and foot chase on Tuesday.

Ashland police officers said they tried to pull over Allan Bobbitt because he was driving with a revoked license. Bobbitt, 32, did not stop for officers, they said.

The chase started at West Broadway and South Main Street in Ashland.

After his car went off road, Bobbitt got out of his car and ran away on foot, police said. Officers said they took him into custody at East Edwards Road off highway DD.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Boone County Sheriff's Department joined in on the chase, and K9 units and a helicopter were involved.

The south campus of Southern Boone County Schools was temporarily on lock down, according to superintendent Chris Felmlee. 

Bobbitt is accused of 10 different offenses:

  • Driving with a revoked license, 2nd offense
  • Avoiding arrest by fleeing 
  • Four counts of failing to stop at a stop sign
  • Three counts of careless and imprudent driving
  • Two counts of failure to drive on the right side of the road 
  • Passing on the right and traveling off the road 
  • Two counts of failure to drive on the right when roadway wasn't sufficient width 
  • Three counts of failure to signal a lane change 
  • Two counts of failure to signal a right turn
