Butte Driver Leads Police on Car Chase

Posted: Updated:

A driver arrested for leading Laurel Police, Montana Highway Patrol troopers, and Stillwater County Sheriff deputies on a car chase appeared in Justice Court.

Laurel Police say 20-year-old Bradley Jackson of Butte was driving a van over the speed limit on E. Main Street. He was charged with two felony counts of criminal endangerment and four other misdemeanors.

A Laurel police officer stopped the vehicle and noticed the van had expired registration. When the officer got out of his car, Jackson sped off and went through a red light. Stillwater County Sheriff deputies and MHP troopers joined in the chase. After the van crashed through a fence and into a ravine, four people jumped out, but were caught after a foot chase.

Police charged another 20-year-old passenger, Dennis Sullivan, for obstructing a police officer. Officers say Sullivan had a warrant for a probation violation in Butte. The two juvenile passengers were not charged.
