KINGDOM CITY — A Fulton man was taken into custody last night after a short vehicle pursuit on Old Highway 54.

Lt. Curtis Hall of the Callaway County Sheriff's Office was flagged down by a witness about a crash that had just occurred. The witness said one of the vehicles, a white mini-van with front-end damage, had fled the scene.

The deputy found the mini-van near the intersection of US Highway 54 and Old Highway 54, just north of Kingdom City. When the deputy tried to pull over the van, the driver didn't stop, and a pursuit began. The van lost control several times on the highway and was eventually disabled just south of Auxvasse. 

Deputies, assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, identified the driver as 31-year-old Aaron Lamons of Fulton. He was taken into custody, and based on evidence from the car and Lamons' behavior, officers concluded he was intoxicated.

Authorities said Lamons was uncooperative and made several threats towards law enforcement, saying he would find them when they were off-duty and assault them. Lamons allegedly refused a breath test and officers obtained a search warrant for a blood sample. Lamons was then taken to a local hospital where blood was drawn and collected before he was released to the Callaway County Jail.

Lamons remains in custody on no bond for driving while intoxicated, felony resisting arrest, careless and imprudent operating of a motor vehicle, felony leaving the scene of an accident, driving while suspended, failure to yield to emergency vehicle and many other charges.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges could be expected.
