A lengthy standoff between Carterville police and an unknown suspect caused traffic delays Saturday night.
The event started in Carterville and ended in front of the Northpark Mall in Joplin.
Originally, a traffic stop was conducted, which evolved into a police pursuit. The driver stopped at a Casey’s in Webb City, where the driver’s window was broken.
The suspect fled, had their tires spiked, and continued at a slow rate of speed before coming to a stop in front of the North Park Mall.
The driver surrendered from there.
We’ll have more information as details become available.
