Police chase ends in city pool


A man on the run from police ended up taking an unexpected dip in a small town.

The Atchison County Sheriff’s Office said on Sunday morning they found out that a Jefferson County deputy had chased a driver into their area. 

When both deputies started chasing him he ended up crashing into the Effingham City pool.

Deputies said he got out of the pool and ran away, but they tracked him down and arrested him on drug and other charges. 

Crews had to pull the car out of the pool with a crane.
