Scrivener is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.

Jacob Campbell is charged with possession of controlled substance and resisting a lawful detention.

According to the Nixa Police Department, Scrivener and Campbell led police on a three-county chase at around 12:19 a.m.

Police tried to stop their vehicle for a suspected DWI.

The driver, Scrivener, did not pull over, beginning the 23-minute long chase that went through Stone County, then Christian County, then Greene County.

“During the pursuit, shots were fired from the suspect vehicle towards law enforcement vehicles which were in pursuit. Law enforcement did not fire any shots at any time during the incident,” Nixa City spokesman Drew Douglas said in a press release.
