JEFFERSON CITY - Police said Friday they arrested two suspects Thursday afternoon after a car chase across mid-Missouri.

Jefferson City police said they arrested 33-year-old Daniel Brown at the end of a chase that began when they said Brown stole a vehicle in Tipton and fled several law enforcement agencies on his way to his home in Jefferson City.

The Moniteau County Sheriff's Department, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the Cole County Sheriff's Department were also involved in the chase.

Jefferson City Police said two different agencies attempted to end the chase by laying spike strips on Highway 50 eastbound toward Jefferson City, but Brown continued to drive the partially disabled vehicle through town to his residence.

The Cole County Sheriff's Department said Brown tried to ram a patrol car during the pursuit.

When Brown stopped the vehicle outside his residence, police said he got out of the vehicle and ran toward another car, attempting to get away again.

Due to the length of the pursuit and Brown's disregard for the safety of others during the chase, the Jefferson City Police Department's K-9 Unit said it released its police dog "Buzz" to catch the suspect before he was able to get away in the second car.

Police said they arrested the suspect's mother, 54-year-old Patti Bowers of Jefferson City, after she interfered with the arrest and assaulted the police dog.

Brown was transported to the hospital with minor injuries before being taken to the Cole County Jail pending charges of tampering with a motor vehicle, resisting arrest by fleeing and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
