CALLAWAY COUNTY - Sheriff's deputies arrested a Fulton man late Friday night after a chase through west Callaway County.
Deputies arrested 35-year-old Travis Schroer, who was driving a vehicle connected to a shots fired incident at Old Highway 54 and County Road 411 around 8:30 p.m. Authorities spotted the vehicle around 9:00 p.m. and gave chase.
The Callaway County Sheriff's Office said the pursuit began at Old Highway 54 and State Road BB near AZZ Central Electric, crossed Old Highway 54 onto County Road 338 and continued on State Road J, through Guthrie, and onto State Road Y.
About 3 miles down State Road Y, Schroer's vehicle veered into a field and crashed through a fence near Blessing Lane.
