MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A man driving a car allegedly stolen from the University of Nebraska was arrested after a chase involving several jurisdictions in northwest Missouri.

Maryville Public Safety Director Keith Wood says the man was caught after a chase that began Monday morning in Tarkio and ended on the south edge of Maryville.

The Maryville Daily Forum reports Tarkio police started the chase after learning the white Chevrolet pickup the man was driving apparently was stolen in Nebraska.

Officers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office and Maryville public safety continued the chase, which went around the outskirts of Maryville until the suspect was forced off the road by a patrol officer. The suspect, whose name was not released, was not seriously injured and was arrested.
