High-Speed Chase in Osage Co.

Sheriff’s deputies in Osage County chased a man down Highway C near Frankenstein Thursday night. Deputy Chris Albert tried to stop the vehicle for several alleged traffic violations around 11 p.m, but the car sped up, fleeing onto gravel roads, and then through numerous fields and farms in the area. The suspect crashed through fences and gates, and officers recovered a license plate that fell off of the vehicle during the chase. Sheriff Michael Dixon, Lieutenant Chris Wolfe, and Lieutenant Adam Bennett, joined Deputy Albert, and officers from the Linn Police Department, the Missouri Department of Conservation, and the Missouri State Highway Patrol in the high-speed chase. Deputy Albert and Sheriff Dixon arrested Adam C. Dudenhoeffer, 26, of Bonnots Mill for resisting arrest, leaving the scene of an accident, driving while intoxicated, and property damage. Dudenhoeffer remains in the Osage County Jail, as officers wait for a warrant. All farmers in the area were contacted regarding the damage to their fences so they could make repairs and contain their livestock.
