KENNETT, MO (KAIT) -

A Missouri man faces a multitude of charges after he reportedly hit a police car with another vehicle, then led police on a pursuit. 

According to a post on the Kennett Police Department Facebook page, Christopher Carter of Florissant, Mo. was arrested Thursday after police went to the Walmart Supercenter due to a shoplifter. 

Officers saw several Walmart employees, who pointed out Carter was walking across the parking lot. 

Carter then got into a nearby car, took off and nearly struck an officer and struck a police car, the post noted. 

Police followed Carter on Missouri Route P in New Madrid County until the vehicle lost control, went off the road and was stuck in a nearby ditch. 

Carter was arrested on suspicion of felony stealing, assault 2nd degree on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, felonious restraint and careless and imprudent driving. 

He was taken to a local hospital due to a preexisting medical condition, pending filing of formal charges in Dunklin County, officials said.
