Man leads Boone County deputies on high-speed car chase

Saturday, one Mid-Missouri man is behind bars for leading deputies on a high speed car chase in Boone County.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department arrested 32-year-old Jayson Breaux after resisting arrest and breaking numerous other laws.

The Sheriff’s Department says it started shortly before 10:00 Friday night when a deputy tried making a routine traffic stop. But the driver, Breaux, did not pull over to the side of the road.

Deputies say during the pursuit, Breaux threw something from his car, did not stop at several stop signs, drove in the wrong lane of traffic multiple times and drove about 55 to 75 miles per hour.

“One of our deputies went to make a traffic stop-a vehicle with registration violation and had a few other traffic violations, and they didn’t stop,” Sgt. Lance Robbins said. “They led us on a pursuit, went about 12 miles and brought us over to Route Z and then went north on Route Z until we were were able to get it stopped with tire deflation devices.”

Deputies say after Breaux’s car came to a stop, the inside of the car was on fire. When the Boone County Fire Protection District responded, the car was fully engulfed in flames.

After the fire was put out, deputies say they found numerous items used in the manufacturing of meth inside the car.

The sheriff’s department says Breaux had an active felony parole violation warrant out for his arrest and a revoked driver’s license.

Breaux is currently being held in the Boone County Jail. He is set to appear in court December 8th.
