Cherokee County authorities find themselves in a pursuit while trying to arrest a man with warrants. Sheriff David Groves says deputies were trying to locate a man near Weir, but the person they wanted wasn't home. The man there gave the deputy a fictitious name, but that was a person who also had warrants. That suspect tried to flee, leading deputies into Missouri. That's where 45-year-old William Ray Clinton of Pittsburg was captured. He had warrants from Crawford County on various drug possession and distribution complaints.
Clinton will now also face charges of aggravated assault on law enforcement, interference with law enforcement, reckless driving, fleeing from the law and driving on a revoked license.
