Drunk Driver Fled from Police at Domestic Violence Scene

When the police arrived at a home after an allegedly intoxicated man and his wife got into a fight, the husband reportedly fled from them for over 30 miles before crashing his truck.

On the morning of July 29, a man and his wife were in their Rozet residence together. The man had allegedly been drinking, and the couple reportedly became entangled in a domestic dispute because he had done so.

At approximately 1:00 PM, the woman learned her husband spent more money on a purchase of liquor, and when she confronted him about it, they got into another argument. The man allegedly started throwing things around the house during their dispute.

The woman’s daughter notified the authorities and said that she got a text message from her mom asking her to call 911.

Around an hour and a half later, deputies from the Crook County Sheriff’s Office went to the couple’s home to investigate the report. The man was reportedly pulling out of the driveway in his truck as they arrived. He allegedly had his wife’s cell phone.

They followed him and tried to catch up, but he was able to enter the Interstate, where he allegedly drove erratically while continuing to lead the police on a chase. The authorities decided to lay out spike strips to force the vehicle to a stop.

When the truck ran over the spikes, one of the tires busted, and the man crashed into a guardrail.

The police reported that the 55-year-old man was uncooperative when they tried to apprehend him, and they used a Tazer to take control of him. He may face charges for suspicion of DUI, domestic assault, fleeing, eluding, reckless driving, and interference.
