DUNKLIN COUNTY, MO (KAIT/KFVS) - One man is behind bars after leading police on a chase from Greene County, AR to Dunklin County, MO.

According to the Paragould Police Department, the chase involving David Pullam, 39, started in Paragould when a vehicle didn't stop for a constable in town late Wednesday night.

The car was thought to be involved in a child welfare case, police say.  According to Missouri Highway Patrol, there was a child in the car with Pullam at the time on the chase.   

Paragould Police followed the suspect, until officers from the Dunklin County Sheriff's Office took over.  Missouri Highway Patrol troopers say the chase ended after midnight east of the St. Francis River Bridge on Highway 84.

Officers say Pullam ran into the woods, but was arrested shortly after.

Pullam will face charges of felony child endangerment, unlawful possession of a weapon and resisting arrest charges.  He is currently in the Dunklin County Jail.

No one was hurt in the chase.
