High-speed Chase Lands Mitchell Man in Jail

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) – A Mitchell man who was driving drunk when he led police on a high-speed chase through residential areas has been sentenced.

Eighteen-year-old Dahjrick Clark was sentenced to 75 days in jail, or about 2  1/2 months behind bars. The Daily Republic newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/TFb2IW ) that he also was ordered to pay more than $2,000 in restitution.

Clark was arrested May 26 after a chase that authorities say involved speeds approaching 100 mph in a 25 mph zone where other traffic and pedestrians were present. He pleaded guilty in October to aggravated eluding and second-offense drunken driving.

Judge Rodney Steele told Clark during his sentencing Tuesday that Clark’s actions put people’s lives in jeopardy.
