Police chief: Man leads police on chase, strikes 2 police vehicles

POTOSI, MO (KFVS) -

A St. Louis man faces charges after police say he led Potosi police on a chase and struck two officers' cars with his vehicle.

Jacob Wayne Just, 32, of St. Louis is charged with two counts of first degree assault on a law enforcement officer, felony driving while revoked, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, first degree property damage, resisting arrest and several traffic violations.

Potosi Chief of Police Roy L. Logsden says an officer tried to pull Just over for a license plate violation and he failed to yield to the officer Monday afternoon.

Logsden says Just tried to strike another Potosi officer’s patrol vehicle and caused that officer to leave the road to avoid a crash.

The chase continued onto to Hwy. 21 north of Potosi.

Just stopped his vehicle on Hwy. 21 near Red Hawk Drive.

When the officer got out of his vehicle, Just is accused of putting his vehicle in reverse and hitting that officer’s car.

Just then continued north on Hwy. 21 into Jefferson County, according to Logsden.

The chase continued for several more miles and ended on Telegraph Road near St. Louis County.

Just's bond is set at $150.000. He was held in St. Louis County for other warrants.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
