March trial set for South Dakota chase suspect

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Trial has been set for a Rapid City man shot and wounded by a Highway Patrol trooper after a chase last fall.

William Chandler, 27, is to stand trial March 6-7 on charges ranging from aggravated assault to eluding. He's pleaded not guilty.

Chandler is accused of leading officers on a chase on Interstate 90 after a trooper tried to pull him over for speeding on Sept. 30. They say he eventually was caught and arrested but managed to escape his handcuffs and steal a squad car. He was shot after allegedly threatening to back the squad car into a trooper.

Chandler faces up to 150 years in prison if convicted.
