A police chase Wednesday night has resulted in the arrest and charges against a 45-year-old Cottage Hills man. Shawn E. Evans allegedly drove away from a "saturation detail" in the 900 block of Acton in Wood River after running a stop sign in a tan minivan with expired plates.
The pursuit that began a little after 9pm led police from several agencies from Acton to Route 111, to Airline Drive to Center Drive, onto a couple of side roads in Cottage Hills, eventually crashing into a power pole on 8th Street at West Drive. Wood River Deputy Chief Dan Bunt tells The Big Z Evans got away at that point but was taken into custody yesterday afternoon.
