A Kodiak man who was wanted for two warrants led authorities on a high-speed chase Wednesday night, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Ross Tolle, 32, was arrested on charges of failing to stop at the direction of a peace officer, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, violation of condition of release and for his two warrants for failure to appear for driving under the influence.
At 7:27 p.m. troopers attempted to stop Tolle near the intersection of Rezanof Drive and Cutoff because the driver was known to have warrants, according to a trooper report.
The trooper called police for backup.
“It’s general practice when there is a fail to yield,” Sgt. Daniel Blizzard said.
Troopers pursued Tolle for about 15 miles, reaching 90 mph, according to the trooper report.
Tolle’s car slowed to a stop because of mechanical issues in front of the Kodiak State Fairgrounds.
Sgt. Blizzard said he did not know specifics about the mechanical issues.
