PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (May 12, 2011) — A man who led police on a two-county high-speed chase through Fort Leonard Wood, St. Robert and Rolla has been charged with felonies that could put him in jail for at least 37 years, according to Pulaski County Prosecutor Kevin Hillman. The most serious local charges against Cody Willcoxson, 31, of South West City, accuse him of shooting and hitting the police car of St. Robert Police Chief Curtis Curenton while using a pistol and an AK-47 to fire out of his moving vehicle while driving at speeds exceeding 100 mph. Additional state charges are expected out of Phelps County and federal charges from Fort Leonard Wood. Willcoxson is being held on a $1 million cash-only bond based on the Pulaski County charge of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer, a Class A felony, resisting a lawful stop, a Class D felony, and an unclassified felony of armed criminal action.

Did the Police Chief consider that Cody was most likely just practicing for the next Top Shot series and got a little carried away?

Cops should have just shot him dead in “self defense” and saved the taxpayers some money. Cops can shoot all the scum they like...I only get upset when they shoot dogs.

If he was driving any faster, he might have shot himself!

‘I will be interested to find out what his motivation was’

FWIW I think it is 60% he’s a skinhead, and 40% he’s a ROP convert.

Willcoxson has been convicted in Oklahoma of assisting the escape of a prisoner, escape from a county jail, second-degree burglary and another count of escape. In 1998 in Missouri, Willcoxson was charged with stealing a motor vehicle and stealing. A Facebook page that was reportedly created after the time of his arrest shows a picture of what appears to be Willcoxson shirtless. The page says Willcoxson studied at Missouri S & T and graduated from Rolla High School. The “About Me” section says “I enjoy learning fun games for kids and adults and I also enjoy live radio streams.”

Sometimes folks get nuts. Cody was a free-wheeling guy who just bought himself lots of time to figure it out.

Drug related items were found in the original vehicle Wilcoxson was in.

Well the sounds of the bullits hitting and the chase are on video. I saw it today. Some guy in his car videoed them passing. He even commented he could smell the smoke after the guy was shooting.

The guy taping this was pretty shook up to hear the gunfire as the chase passed him by.

I think he did shoot himself in the hand - his clothes were covered in blood when they caught him.

Obviously it’s video of the incident. You see the perps in the car shooting at the cops right?

No, it isn’t. You make us sit through a commercial to watch a stupid video. I’ll know next time to ignore your posts.

Maybe you turned it off too soon? At 1:32 you can clearly see shots fired at the trooper.
