A Salt Lake man has been arrested following a high speed chase on Redwood Road about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Salt Lake City Police Lt. Joel Campbell said the name of the man is not being released but that he has been booked into jail for investigation of reckless driving and aggravated assault.Campbell said the chase began when officers responded to reports of a driver operating his vehicle recklessly in the area of Sixth South and Emery Street. When officers arrived, a car sped away, driving west to Redwood Road and then north. A tire blew on the car at about Seventh North. Following a short foot chase, a man was arrested.
Campbell said a juvenile was a passenger in the car. No charges have been filed against him.
Campbell said the aggravated assault allegation stems from the endangerment caused to other motorists by the manner in which the vehicle was operated during the chase.
