(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A man who was arrested after a high-speed chase in midtown St. Joseph in a stolen vehicle last summer was sentenced to prison.

Andre Dwight Jones, 47, was sentenced to six years in prison for resisting arrest by fleeing.

According to court documents, Jones was behind the wheel of a stolen car around 9:30 p.m. on August 3, 2018. Jones fled from officers after they spotted him driving in the area of 25th and Olive.
