BOONE COUNTY, Mo. (KMIZ)

A Columbia man faces multiple charges after a vehicle chase on June 9 in Boone County and then on Thursday in Callaway County.

According to the Boone County Sheriff's Department, a deputy attempted to stop Davy Rasa for failing to display proper registration in a vehicle. Rasa drove off and the chase was terminated due to unsafe driving conditions. A few hours later, a chase ensued again after the vehicle was spotted but again stopped ude to unsafe driving conditions.

A tip from social media led deputies to identifying Rasa as the driver.

On Thursday afternoon, deputies found Rasa driving the same vehicle near the Lake of the Woods area. Rasa drove off into Callaway County.

Multiple law enforcement agencies followed Rasa before Rasa drove onto private property. Law enforcement concerned they may damage the landowner’s property, deputies attempted to follow on foot. Rasa drove at the deputies and they were forced to move out of the way to avoid being struck.

Rasa was later apprehended a short time later by a Missouri State highway Patrol trooper.

Rasa was booked for the following on-view charges into Boone County Jail:

  • two felony counts of resisting arrest.
  • two felony counts of third-degree assault
  • two counts careless and imprudent driving
  • speeding

Rasa was also booked for several outstanding warrants.
