A wanted Houston man was arrested Saturday night by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

A Houston felon is wanted by authorities after a high-speed chase Monday night in rural Montgomery County.

Brandy Roy DeWolfe, 34, led authorities from five law enforcement agencies on a chase that ended on a private gated driveway. DeWolfe, who has a lengthy criminal record, fled into the woods at sunset.

He is charged with four felonies: DWI, alcohol, persistent offender; driving while revoked, resisting arrest, assault of a law enforcement officer and a misdemeanor, property damage, according to court records.

Bond was set at $50,000 cash.

DeWolfe’s address is listed as 9267 U.S. 63, Houston.

Authorities said DeWolfe, who was granted probation in February after being sentenced to four years in prison in November 2011 on a Laclede County case, is a white male, who is 5 foot-8 inches and has a reddish, blond goatee, shaved head and blue eyes.

Authorities offered this explanation of the incident: A Wellsville officer stopped DeWolfe routinely. With the officer back in his vehicle and on a radio, DeWolfe took off in a 1989 Chevrolet pickup, and the chase began. DeWolfe sped through side streets and headed toward Montgomery City. At one point, DeWolfe’s vehicle nearly hit a Wellsville patrol car and forced it into a ditch, officers said.

The chase ended when the truck was stopped by a locked gate. The suspect ran into the woods.
