Iberia man found guilty and sentenced for 2020 Cole County chase



An Iberia man was found guilty and sentenced after a 2020 vehicle chase in Cole County.

Cole County Prosecutor Locke Thompson says Cody Umfleet was found guilty of resisting arrest and operating a vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner. He was sentenced to two years in a Department of Corrections facility.

Umfleet was first stopped around 3 p.m. on Nov. 17, 2021, before he drove off and evaded arrest for over three hours. He was then arrested in a field with the help of a police K9.

Police said Umfleet was taken to a local hospital for injuries he sustained while being arrested.
