Osage Beach Police arrested 56 year old Gary Nelson from Gravois Mills on Friday afternoon after he led officers on a wild chase throughout the city in a U-haul vehicle. According to Sergeant Arlyne Page, They started to received phone calls about someone sleeping on Osage Beach Parkway and soon they wound up in a chase
Suddenly out of nowhere, the man took off going upwards of 80 miles an hour down the parkway randomly stopping out of the blue
Eventually he went into hiding at Bridgeport and officers tracked him down and attempted to talk to him. Suddenly, he took off down the road again eventually tearing through the Wal-Mart parking lot and finally being stopped by police in the Hy-Vee parking lot where police had enough
No one understands why he did the things he did but because of his actions he is now being charges with resisting arrest, assault of an officer in the 2nd and 3rd degree, and violating traffic laws. Nelson is currently being held at the Camden County Jail with no Bond.
