October 25 around 12:45 a.m. a deputy reported checking an east bound car in western Livingston County on U.S. 36 at 95 in a 65 and was unable to quickly turn on the vehicle and notified a deputy who was a few miles east of their location.
That deputy got into position and found the vehicle had already sped past his location and was travelling very fast. That deputy worked at catching up and stopping the vehicle which at times was traveling over 100 miles per hour and a speed allegedly reaching 119 miles per hour.
The deputy got the suspect vehicle stopped inside Linn County. The driver had indicated he had left Bethany and was headed to Louisiana MO. The driver was further investigated for suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. LCSO staff arrested Brandon Michael Westfall, 34, Louisiana, MO for the alleged DWI and Excessive Speed.
Mr. Westfall was processed and issued citations to appear in Court on December 04 and released to a responsible adult.
Fortunately no one was injured during this incident.
