Uintah County deputies say a North Dakota man led them on a high-speed chase and foot pursuit into the snowy hills.
About 1:30 a.m. Saturday, a Uintah County Sheriff's deputy saw a man speeding down the middle of both eastbound lanes on Main Street in Vernal with no headlights on, according to a news release. The deputy pulled the driver over into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven at 500 E. Main Street.
But when the deputy approached the man, who was the only one in the vehicle, he shifted into reverse and backed up towards the deputy, according to the release. The suspect then sped off eastbound on State Road 40 toward Naples, the release adds.
