A Leavenworth man was arrested after he allegedly led authorities on a chase in two states, a police spokesman said.

Members of the Leavenworth Police Department were contacted around 11:45 a.m. Monday with a report of a disturbance in the area of Klemp and Ohio streets.

Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said the suspect allegedly had pointed a handgun at someone during a “road rage” incident. The suspect left the area, but the victim remained at the scene.

Officers located the suspect’s vehicle in the vicinity a short time later. Police attempted to stop the vehicle, and a pursuit ensued.

The suspect allegedly drove across the Centennial Bridge into Missouri. Members of the Missouri Highway Patrol and Platte County, Missouri, Sheriff’s Office joined in the pursuit.

At some point, the suspect reportedly turned onto I-435, which took him back into Kansas. Members of the Kansas Highway Patrol then joined the pursuit.

Kitchens said officers used spike strips and other measures to disable the suspect’s car.

The suspect was apprehended in the area of I-435 and Leavenworth Road.

A handgun was recovered during a search of the suspect’s vehicle. Officers also found a small amount of what is believed to be marijuana as well as an open container of alcohol, Kitchens said.

The suspect was arrested for allegations of aggravated assault, criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing and attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, possession of marijuana and transporting an open container. He was transported to the Leavenworth County Jail.
