Just before 2:30 Thursday morning Billings Police say they tried to stop a driver for speeding. Police say the driver, Clayton Mascarena, initially stopped but then took off at an extremely high speed. The officer says he followed Mascarena from Main Street to Birch where the driver collided with a utility pole.
Officials say Mascarena ran from the car and after a short foot chase the officer fired a taser hitting Mascarena.
Mascarena faces several charges including driving under the influence.
