Car burns, man arrested after drunk chase in Cottage Grove

Posted: Updated:

 Cottage Grove police are trying to identify a man after he was arrested for DWI on Saturday afternoon. Officers were dispatched on a report that an elderly male drove over a curb and hit a rock. A witness called 9-1-1 and stated that the driver might be intoxicated and that the SUV the suspect drove had a flat tire and had fled the scene in his vehicle.

One of the officers caught up to the suspect and reported that the vehicle was “losing rubber from the flat tire”. After failing to pull over for officers, the man continued at speeds of 70 miles per hour before heading the wrong way on Glen Road. At that point, the officer reported flames under the SUV. After finally stopping, officers pulled the man from the vehicle and he was found to be intoxicated. The driver is being processed for DWI and felony fleeing. Police say they are trying to identify the man but his wallet and identification were burned in the vehicle which is listed out of South Dakota.
