Franklin County, MO (KSDK) - A man wanted by Franklin County deputies and Pacific police has been apprehended after a chase.

Timothy Kalter, 31, of Pacific, was wanted for a felony probation violation, and police wanted to question him regarding auto thefts in the area.

Deputies had attempted to talk to Kalter several times but those attempts resulted in pursuits that sometimes exceeded 100 miles per hour.

On Thursday, detectives searched for Kalter in Gray Summit where they believed he may be visiting.

Kalter was spotted around 3 p.m. pulling into the Garden Way motel in a Mustang that had been reported stolen from Eureka Wednesday night.

Other officers were called to the scene, but the suspect had left before they arrived.

Minutes later, Kalter was observed pumping gas in Villa Ridge.

A deputy ordered Kalter to the ground, but he instead got into his vehicle. The deputy approached Kalter's car and reached through the window to try and grab the keys.

Authorities say Kalter started the car and started driving while dragging the deputy, whose arm was caught in the wheel.

The deputy shot twice at Kalter, striking him in the arm and torso.

Deputies say Kalter continued to drive and they received a tip about a possible sighting in Eureka. Bloody clothes were found along Old Highway 66 in the area.

Pacific firefighters than saw the Mustang pass their station on Osage with a female driving.

A St. Louis County officer in the area saw the vehicle and stopped it on the westbound Interstate 44 entrance ramp.

The woman driving the car is believed to have been picked up by Kalter at her home after the shooting, and was transporting him to the hospital for treatment.

The deputy was taken to a local hospital and has been released. His injuries are not serious.

Kalter's condition is unknown.

Bond for his probation violation is set at $75,000.
