Kansas City man out on probation charged after high-speed Columbia chase


Boone County prosecutors on Friday charged a Kansas City man who allegedly led police on a high-speed chase and tried to get rid of guns Thursday afternoon.

Authorities in Kansas also say Jayshod Salisbury, 22, of Kansas City, Missouri, is on probation for attempted second-degree murder in Johnson County.

Salisbury was in the Boone County Jail without bond on Friday, charged with resisting arrest, drug distribution, three counts of illegal gun possession and tampering with evidence.

Columbia police arrested Salisbury after he did not stop for 7 miles when a police officer attempted to pull him over, according to a probable cause statement. Salisbury was driving on Clark Lane when he quickly turned into the Mcdonald's parking lot. Police said this was to avoid being stopped.

The officer then turned on his lights and siren but Salisbury sped out of the parking lot, running a red light in the process, the statement says. Salisbury then drove onto Interstate 70, reaching up to 90 mph and running an additional two red lights, according to police.

The chase eventually ended around Primrose Drive and Sunflower Street when the car Salisbury was driving blew a tire on a curb, police say.

Officers found a bag of oxycodone pills on Salisbury, the statement says. Three guns were also found in the area of Primrose Drive and Sunflower Street. The condition of those guns lead police to believe that they were thrown from a car, according to the statement.

Multiple rounds of bullets were also discovered in the trunk of the car, which allegedly had temporary tags that were forged.

Salisbury is out on parole for his involvement in a second-degree murder charge in Kansas from 2020. Johnson County, Kansas, officials said Salisbury served four months in prison before being let out on a three-year probation term.

He also has another charge of fleeing from law enforcement in Kansas.

Police said Thursday that two men had been arrested but only Salisbury had been charged late Friday.
