Clay County Sheriff Patrick Robinson is reporting that on November 26, 2021 at approximately 10:00 PM Clay County Sheriff K9 Deputy Wes Brumley along with Deputy Jared Smith and Deputy Coty Arnold arrested Joshua Burton, 25 of Columbia. The arrest occurred when Deputy Brumley was dispatched to a complaint of a male subject brandishing a firearm during a dispute with a female subject. While Deputy Brumley was in the area, Deputy Brumley noted observing the vehicle matching the description at a high rate of speed.

The subject then bailed out of the vehicle once it came to a stop and ran on foot approximately 100 yards before being apprehended. During the arrest the subject failed to obey lawful commands and actively resist. After a brief struggle the subject was arrested without further incident.
