1 Arrested, 1 Sought After Weekend Chase

A Kirksville man who led police on a high-speed chase in two counties has been arrested and police are looking for another man in connection with the incident. 31-year-old Jeffrey Sharp is charged with second-degree assault and resisting arrest. Sharp is accused of driving away from a state trooper’s stop over the weekend then leading officers on a chase up to 75 milers-per-hour through parts of Macon and Adair Counties before finally crashing his car into a ditch. Sharp then fled on foot with another occupant of the car. That passenger the subject of a police hunt today.
