A traffic stop initiated after what a police officer alleges was a short pursuit, ended with the driver in the back of the patrol car. The report of the incident characterizes the accused man as being combative and uncooperative. In fact, the events that took place during the traffic stop have left the Utah man facing charges for DUI, damage to a jail and obstruction of justice, among other things.
The officer claims to have seen a vehicle traveling at approximately 15 mph over the posted 60 mph speed limit. The officer gave chase with his lights and sirens activated and claims the driver of the vehicle attempted to elude him. When the vehicle finally came to a stop in a parking lot, the officer suspected the man of being intoxicated.
