JEFFERSON CITY - Tuesday evening, Jefferson City Police attempted to conduct a traffic stop of a car known to be occupied by a man with an outstanding warrant.
The driver, Izaya Sands, a 19 year old Jefferson City man, refused to stop for police and a pursuit began.
During the chase, a handgun was thrown from the car, and other JCPD units joined as it continued throughout the city. The driver, Izaya Sands, attempted to elude officers through an alley, and then ran while the passenger remained in the car. Police ran after him, and Sands was arrested shortly after.
Sands was arrested for failure to appear warrant, resisting arrest, and hindering prosecution.
The passenger in the car was Dana Day, a 27 year old man from Jefferson City. He was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Cole County based on a weapons offense charge back in September.
An investigation regarding the gun thrown from the vehicle is still ongoing.
