A Columbia man faces several charges after allegedly leading law enforcement on a chase through northeast Columbia on Sunday.

Juwan Clark, 23, is charged with two counts of leaving the scene of an accident – causing more than $1,000 worth of property damage, misdemeanor leaving the scene of an accident, resisting arrest by fleeing, operating a motor vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner and operating a vehicle on a highway without a valid license.

Clark is being held in the Boone County Jail on a $25,000 bond. He appeared in court by video from the jail for an arraignment on Tuesday. A bond hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, while the preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 20.

According to the probable cause statement, a Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy saw Clark driving away from a Columbia Police Department vehicle. The CPD officer ended the pursuit near the intersection of Clark Lane and Hanover Boulevard after deploying spikes on the Ford Fusion Clark was driving. The Sheriff’s Deputy then began to pursue.

Clark went towards the Interstate 70/Highway 63 interchange at 80 miles per hour and almost caused several accidents, the statement says. Clark eventually hit two parked vehicles on Quail Drive and didn’t stop. He then allegedly hit another vehicle.

He then allegedly tried to run away and was detained following a standoff at his apartment, according to the probable cause statement.
