JACKSON COUNTY, Kan. (KSNT) – A Mayetta man is in jail after leading Jackson County deputies on a car chase in southern Jackson County Wednesday morning.

A chase started near 142nd and Q. Road in Jackson County and continued east into Jefferson County. Simpson then headed southbound on Meriden Road where a deputy threw out stop sticks to halt the car.

Simpson continued to drive west toward Jackson County on 90th Road. That’s when the front driver’s side tire separated from the wheel and his truck became disabled.

Simpson faces the following charges:

  • Felony flee and eluding a law enforcement officer
  • Driving while suspended
  • Reckless Driving
  • Operating a vehicle without an interlock device

Simpson also had outstanding warrants from Atchison and Douglas counties, as well as the City of Topeka.
