(KMOV)-- Two people were arrested after a police chase started in St. Peters and ended on Interstate 70 near Lambert International Airport.
Authorities said an off-duty officer working security spotted a female shoplifter at Dillard’s at Mid-Rivers Mall late Tuesday afternoon.
The off-duty officer followed her out to the parking lot. The suspect hit the officer with her vehicle. Authorities are not sure if it was intentional or not. The officer was not injured.
Police saw the suspect's vehicle and a chase began. They backed off once they had air support.
The chase entered St. Ann, when officers deployed spike strips. The female driver and her male passenger were arrested at the scene.
Charges are expected later.
