Two men arrested after police chase in Missouri, Illinois
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) – Cape Girardeau police say two men are in jail after shooting at officers and ramming a patrol vehicle in a chase that crossed into Illinois.
Police Sgt. Joey Hann says the chase began Saturday night when officers tried to stop a truck in Cape Girardeau. He says the truck driver fled and intentionally rammed a patrol vehicle.
The chase then went across the Bill Emerson bridge into Illinois.
Hann says a passenger in the truck shot at officers with a rifle before the truck crashed. Both men are jailed Ullin, Illinois, pending formal charges in both states.
