      Suspect in 3 states arrested after wild chase

      PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A suspect wanted in three states was captured in southwest Missouri after a chase that included two car thefts, ramming a sheriff's car and robbing a store.

      Authorities say the 46-year-old man from Pineville is wanted in South Carolina, Ohio and Louisiana for charges including burglary, assault and theft of weapons.

      The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/N7KIYb ) the chase began Tuesday near Noel when the driver refused to pull over for a traffic stop. McDonald County authorities pursued him into Oklahoma and then back into Missouri.

      The man is suspected of robbing a convenience store in Missouri and stealing the clerk's car. He was finally arrested after Missouri Highway Patrol officers chased him to Southwest City, where he hid behind a home.

      He's being held in McDonald County. Charges are pending.
