Florida Man Arrested After Car Chase In Fremont County
A Florida man led law enforcement officers on a chase through Fremont County before being arrested on Saturday, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
The chase began at 3:37 p.m. on Wyoming Highway 789 north of Lander when a trooper saw the car driven by Joshua Ewing, 37, had expired license plates.
Ewing failed to stop, and the trooper pursued him south towards Lander city limits.
The trooper ended the pursuit for the safety of the public.
Lander Police officers saw the vehicle a short time later and gave chase. The pursuit led police onto a county road before Fremont County Sheriff's deputies could successfully deploy spike strips to deflate the tires.
Ewing drove back to Wyoming 789 south of Lander and the Wyoming Highway Patrol took over the chase. The vehicle came to a stop near milepost 53 on Wyoming Highway 28.
Troopers arrested him without further incident and booked him into the Fremont County Jail.
Law enforcement later learned the car, a 2008 Dodge Avenger, was stolen in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Ewing was charged with eluding, reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of stolen property.
