(CLINTON COUNTY, Mo.) The Clinton County Sheriff's Department assisted the Missouri State Highway Patrol with a high speed pursuit that reached 125 mph on I-35.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, deputies successfully deployed spikes along the highway to deflate the tires of a vehicle driven by a homicide suspect on the highway.

The suspect then crashed the vehicle and fled the scene on foot. After a brief standoff with authorities, he was taken into custody.
