A multi-county pursuit of a wanted man comes to an end in northeast Missouri after the suspect ran out of gas.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Daremiah Gibson, 30, of Wright City, Missouri, was arrested shortly after noon Tuesday in Shelby County.
The suspect ran out of gas on County Road 315, near Shelby County Route MM.
Gibson was taken into custody at that time without further incident.
Gibson was wanted for a felony probation and parole warrant, a felony Warren County warrant for fraud, a felony Lincoln County warrant for bad checks and a Franklin County warrant for driving while revoked.
Several traffic charges are now pending against him as well.
State troopers started pursuing Gibson at approximately 9:30 a.m. Tuesday on westbound Interstate 70 near the Montgomery/Warren County line.
The ground pursuit was called off when troopers noticed a small child in the car with Gibson.
A highway patrol aircraft was in the area and continued to keep an eye on the vehicle from the sky.
A short time later, the car stopped, and a woman and a small child got out.
Gibson continued to flee as troopers then resumed the chase.
In Columbia, Gibson got off of I-70 and eventually got to Highway 63 where he continued north through Randolph and Macon counties.
He eventually traveled onto county roads in Shelby County where the aircraft pilot informed troopers on the ground where Gibson's car had come to a stop.
Gibson is being held in the Marion County Jail in Palmyra.
