KODIAK — A Kodiak man has been charged with leading the Kodiak Police Department on a brief car chase, then escaping on foot.

Robert Dalglish, 21, was arraigned in Kodiak Superior Court Jan. 17 on charges of reckless driving, failure to stop and driving with a revoked license.

According to court documents, the charges stem from an incident in mid-November when a Kodiak Police Department officer attempted to pull over a vehicle on Mylark Lane.

The officer states in documents that he knew Dalglish’s license was suspended and was able to identify him as the vehicle’s driver even though the driver was wearing sunglasses, a hat and a hood.

Instead of stopping for the police car, the vehicle continued to drive on, turning onto Selief Lane and speeding up.

The police car chased the suspect vehicle onto Beaver Lake Drive, where it was eventually forced to stop by a dead end.

The driver ran away on foot in the direction of Dark Lake and escaped.

Based on the police officer’s identification of the driver, a warrant was issued for Dalglish. He was arrested Jan. 9 and is next scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 21.

Failure to stop is a class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
