Man who pulled in front of deputies is accused of impeding chase; cyclist is accused of witness tampering

OSCEOLA, Mo. - A man from Stockton is charged with interfering with a law enforcement chase on Missouri 13 last summer. St. Clair County deputies were trying to stop two speeding motorcycles on July 16 when they say Jeremy Schies, 31, got in their way and then tried to cause a crash.

The chase started in Osceola when an officer tried to pull over two motorcyclists who were speeding north on Missouri 13. The bikers kept going seven miles to Lowry City and then turned back south. Several deputies joined the chase by that time. When the motorcyclists passed back through Osceola, deputies say, they were going about 135 miles per hour.

North of Collins, the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department says, the motorcycles passed a truck driven by Schies, who was pulling a trailer. Deputies said the truck switched lanes in front of a deputy to prevent the deputy from chasing the bikers.
