31-year old Arthur M. Bryant of Kansas City, Missouri was charged Wednesday with resisting arrest stemming from a Sept. 2 vehicle and foot chase through Cape Girardeau. A probable cause statement says Bryant nearly ran Southeast Missouri State University police officer William Sammut off the road about 2:20 a.m. while driving in the center of Bellvue Street in a 2011 Nissan. Sammut says Bryan ran a stop sign, turned south on West End Boulevard with Sammut giving chase, but he crashed in a church lawn near 217 N. West End Blvd. Bryant then fled on. An unchained dog at a residence stopped the chase. Police found Bryant’s wallet and a semi-automatic, .45-caliber handgun in the glove box of the abandoned car. The car was registered to Ronetta Artis of Cape Girardeau, who reportedly allowed Bryant to borrow it. A criminal history of Bryant indicates he was on probation and parole in Missouri for robbery in the first degree and attempted first-degree assault on a law-enforcement officer.
