Sioux Falls Police Information Officer Sam Clemens has the details on an incident that happened about 2:18 PM Thursday in the Downtown area near 11th Street and 2nd Avenue.

“The car was going at a high rate of speed with excessive engine noise. That’s why police (initially) went to stop it. He pulled into a parking lot by TommyJacks Pub. As soon as he stopped. The driver got out and started walking away.”

From there, Clemens says the chase included a tour through a different downtown business before concluding.

“He entered Duluth Trading Company and then ran out the back emergency door. Officers were able to catch him then.”
