By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

On Sunday afternoon, April 9, 2022, Columbia and Adair County units were given an "attempt to locate" on a 2011 orange Nissan Rogue and operator by Adair County 911.

Officers with the Columbia Police Department attempted to initiate a stop after locating the vehicle leaving the Public Square and turning to Campbellsville Street. During this time the operator continued traveling on HWY55 North, northbound.

Just outside of the city limits, the driver turned and began driving southbound back towards Columbia. Officers with the Columbia Police Department and Adair County Sheriff's Office were able to box in the vehicle and make it come to a stop. The male operator then fled his vehicle on foot, leaving it in gear. The vehicle then struck the cruiser of a Sheriff's Deputy.

After a brief foot pursuit, the subject was detained and taken into custody.

Jagger Compton, 18, of Columbia is facing multiple charges including fleeing and evading in a motor vehicle, fleeing and evading on foot, wanton endangerment 1st, criminal mischief 1st, and assault 3rd degree police officer.

Officer Kevin Atwood and Deputy Tracy McCarol were the arresting Officers.
