LIBERTY, MO (KCTV) -- A police chase that started in Clinton County on Wednesday ultimately ended when the vehicle crashed into a hotel in Liberty.
According to the Clinton County Sheriff's Office, the chase started after a deputy saw a vehicle with stolen plates.

Perkins was taken into custody on an outstanding warrant for felony driving while revoked.
The sheriff's office has applied for 16 charges. He has been formally charged with:
- Receiving stolen property
- Property damage
- Resisting arrest
His bond has been set at $5,000.
