LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — A federal fugitive surrendered to police Thursday afternoon after first trying to escape them.

Police say they first encountered the suspect at Linwood and Brighton, where he put his car into reverse and tried to hit the officers at least twice. Several agencies pursued the suspect’s vehicle down 50 Highway.

The driver drove onto the median and hit something that disabled the car near Highways 50 and 291, where the suspect surrendered without resisting further.

Authorities have not yet released the original or current charges against the suspect
