An Eldon man held on a felony property damage charge after a pursuit which came to an end off Passover Road before fleeing on foot into a wooded area in February now faces another charge.

The probable cause statement filed in Camden County alleges Justin Hartwick was in a stolen truck ramming vehicles in the Eldon area.

The suspect vehicle was then spotted along Route-W on the Northshore before heading westbound on highway-54 at speeds 120-plus miles-per-hour.

Hartwick also allegedly stopped at one point on the Osage Beach Parkway in what was believed to be an effort to get hit from behind before knocking down a street light and continuing to Formula Drive where he abandoned the vehicle and got away. He was then taken into custody in March.

Hartwick is now also charged with felony resisting and other traffic-related offenses in connection to the sequence of events. The new warrant was issued and served on Wednesday. Hartwick remains in custody without bond.
