The driver of the vehicle – later identified as 28-year-old Tethloac Chieng Chut – refused to pull over for the officer, who had engaged lights and sirens.  A short time later, Chut stopped at home of someone he knew.  The officer was then able to complete a felony stop on the vehicle and Chut was taken into custody without incident

Chut faces possible charges of fleeing police in a motor vehicle, 3rd and 4th degree DWI, and test refusal.
