SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - Sioux Falls police say they are searching for a man who rammed a patrol vehicle and then led officers on a high-speed pursuit.

Clemens said the officers briefly pursued him but eventually ended the pursuit.

Police said they know the identity of the man but he has not been arrested yet.
