Wanted Man Leads High Speed Chase

KSAL StaffSeptember 17, 2014

Shawnee County authorities have arrested a man who they say led officers on a chase through two counties using a stolen vehicle.

Sheriff’s Lt. Danny Lotridge says on Tuesday a Silver Lake officer spotted the 54-year-old man walking at a park. There was an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Lotridge says the man stole a Jeep Grand Cherokee when he saw the officer and fled.

The pursuit ended in Jefferson County after authorities popped the vehicle’s tires. Deputies say they broke out two windows and threatened to send in a police dog before the man surrendered.

He was taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries that deputies say are unrelated to the chase. Authorities say he faces charges of motor vehicle theft, fleeing and various traffic violations.
