A Holts Summit man has been charged after a high-speed chase with authorities Monday night.

Mark Wolfmeier, 48, is charged with one count of resisting a lawful detention.

Deputies were informed just after 8 p.m. that Wolfmeier had run from Holts Summit police after a hit-and-run accident and was driving west on U.S. 54 at 90 mph, according to a Cole County Sheriff's Department probable cause statement.

A Cole County deputy noticed Wolfmeier pass him at U.S. 54 and Missouri 179. He allegedly was weaving in and out of traffic and not using his turn signals when changing lanes.

Near U.S. 54 and Monticello Road, the deputy tried to stop Wolfmeier, but Wolfmeier continued, traveling at speeds that ranged from 70-104 mph, until Missouri Highway Patrol troopers, using spike strips, deflated Wolfmeier's front driver's-side tire in Miller County.

Wolfmeier eventually exited into a gas station lot in the 300 block of North Shore Drive. He got out of the vehicle and tried to go into the gas station, despite being ordered to stop. Wolfmeier continued to resist deputies, who were able to get him down on the ground and arrest him just after 8:30 p.m.
