SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Ariz. - A Scottsdale man has been arrested after authorities say he led them on a high-speed pursuit throughout the Valley that ended on Salt River Reservation farmland.
According to the Department of Public Safety, a trooper attempted to pull over a red 2005 Kia Sorrento that was making unsafe lane changes just before 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday. The driver of the Kia pulled into a shopping center parking lot near Country Club and McKellips Road but did not stop.
The trooper then used his PA system to tell the driver to pull into a parking spot. The driver of the Kia did not comply and sped away from the trooper.
The red Kia then entered the Salt River Reservation, evading law enforcement by driving through farm field roads.
After some time, the Kia stopped and the 31-year-old driver, a Scottsdale man, was taken into custody. DPS says he has outstanding warrants for a probation violation. Officials say his name will be released after he is booked into jail.
The female and male passengers of the Kia were released at the scene.
