LIBERTY, Mo. — A Wednesday morning police chase ended at a Liberty hotel, after the suspect’s car rolled into the building.
According to the Clay County Sheriff’s office, the chase started in Clinton County. The suspect crossed into Clay County and deputies from the sheriff’s office responded to help.
Deputies said the suspects drove to a hotel on Church Road in Liberty. They jumped out of a black truck and tried to run from deputies. They were arrested, but the driver apparently forgot to shift the car into park. Deputies said that when the suspects bailed out of the car, it rolled into the hotel.
A tow truck was called to haul the truck away. There is no major damage to the outside of the hotel.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Milton Andrew Munson’s obituary recalled his life as an Air Force veteran, a pharmacist, husband and father, and as a Nebraska football fan. That was evident in one line in the obit: “In lieu of flowers, please place an irresponsibly large wager on Nebraska beating Iowa.”
Munson, 73, died Nov. 16. The obit, written by Munson’s sons, ran Thursday in the Hastings Tribune, the Lincoln Journal Star reported. It caught fire on social media and captured the attention of two radio hosts, Josh Peterson, co-host of an afternoon sports talk show on KOZN-AM in Omaha and Jack Mitchell of KLIN-AM in Lincoln.
