Two Tuscumbia men were arrested Saturday after leading Callaway County deputies on a 40-mile chase through four towns at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.
• Kasey Wayne Nelson, 22, Tuscumbia, who faces charges of careless and imprudent driving, resisting arrest for a felony by creating a substantial risk of serious injury, speeding, illegal possession of methamphetamine, and unlawful use of methamphetamine drug paraphernalia.
• Cody Ray Glore, 20, Tuscumbia, who faces charges of illegal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of methamphetamine drug paraphernalia.
Callaway County deputies reported at 1:07 a.m. Saturday they attempted to stop a blue 2000 Chevrolet Camaro for a traffic violation on County Road 4012 outside of Holts Summit.
The vehicle failed to stop and a deputy pursued the vehicle for more than 40 miles along Route 94 through the towns of Tebbetts, Mokane, Steedman and Portland at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The pursuit continued north on Route D through Readsville, then along the I-70 overpass and west on Old Highway 40.
