Tripp man sent to prison for police chases in 2 counties

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A Tripp man who led police on chases in two counties earlier this year has been sentenced to spend two years in prison.

Authorities say 36-year-old Jeremy Daugherty led officers on chases in Charles Mix County in May and in Hutchinson County in August. He initially faced seven felony charges and nine misdemeanors.

The Daily Republic reports that Daugherty was sentenced on a drug charge in Charles Mix County in late October and for aggravated eluding in Hutchinson County on Monday.

The sentences in the two counties are to run at the same time, meaning he is to serve a total of two years with credit for about three months he's already spent behind bars.
