Cass County prosecutors have charged 45-year-old Jacob Rullman of St. Joseph, MO with felony

Deputies with the Cass County Sheriff's Office attempted to stop Rullman’s vehicle traveling

Southbound on 7 Highway near Creighton.

Rullman lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a nearby field.

As deputies were taking him into custody, they overheard the sounds of a small child from the

backseat.

Deputies were able to quickly extract the child from the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle was transported to an undisclosed hospital for evaluation.

The child, who stated she was unharmed, was checked by EMS on scene and safely returned to

her mother upon her arrival.

D Felony.

He is being held at the Cass County Jail on a $200,000 cash only bond.
