CENTERVILLE -- One man was arrested and police are looking for another after a high-speed chase Monday night.
Lt. Paul Child said two men were seen about 10:30 p.m. breaking into a PT Cruiser in the parking lot of the Lone Star Restaurant, 111 S. 800 West, Centerville.
The vehicle owner, a restaurant employee, left the restaurant with a female co-worker and saw the two men burglarizing her car. Once the men saw the women, they fled in a Cadillac Escalade that was later determined to be stolen.
Child said the two women were almost hit by the Escalade; Sgt. Niles Bartleson said if the driver is located, he'll face additional charges of aggravated assault. A Centerville officer spotted the vehicle getting onto Interstate 15 from Parrish Lane. The Escalade drove on the freeway and took the first Farmington exit, then traveled south on a frontage road back toward Centerville.
When the officer tried to stop the Escalade, Child said, the vehicle continued to speed up to about 100 miles per hour and would not pull over.
"Officers set up roadway vehicle spikes near Parrish Lane, and they were successful in flattening two of the tires on the Escalade," Child said.
The chase continued into a residential area in Bountiful, with the Escalade driving on one rim and another flat tire. The two men jumped from the car and ran as the SUV stopped in the front yard of a home in the neighborhood.
The passenger in the vehicle was captured by police after he jumped a fence into a backyard. Police were not able to locate the driver. The passenger, Glen Michael House, 19, of Salt Lake City, received minor injuries and was taken to Lakeview Hospital, where he was examined and released, then booked into Davis County Jail.
Child said the identity of the driver is not known. He said the Escalade was stolen from a dealership in North Salt Lake and had a Colorado plate on it that was registered to a Kia.
