Formal charges were filed Wednesday in connection with a brief car chase that occurred Tuesday in Jefferson City.
According to court records, Sunny Kingsley, 26, 2612 Schott Road, was charged with resisting a lawful stop and driving with a suspended license.
A Jefferson City police department probable cause statement shows an officer tried to stop Kingsley's vehicle just before 11:30 a.m. for not having a front license plate.
As the officer began to turn around to get behind the vehicle, it immediately sped off.
The officer gave chase, but Kingsley continued to drive on at a high rate of speed.
Eventually, the vehicle was stopped at Myrtle and MoDOT Drive, and Kingsley, whose license was suspended, fled from officers.
A further check of the car found it had been reported stolen from Callaway County.
