KENNETT, MO (KFVS) -

A Kennett man was arrested after police say he led police on a chase during a traffic stop.

Kennett Police officers tried to conduct a traffic stop on Willoughby Street in Kennett on Dec. 7 for failure to stop at a stop sign.

Higgs' driver's license was suspended.

He was taken to the Dunklin County Jail pending further charges of resisting arrest by fleeing, driving while suspended and failure to stop at a stop sign.
