UPDATE: A rural Salina man was arrested Thursday in connection with leading police on a high speed pursuit earlier this month.
Police say Samuel Good, 32, is alleged to have fled from officers after failing to yield during a funeral procession at about 2 p.m. on May 2nd.
The pursuit began near the intersection of Crawford and LeFran, when Good, who was driving a blue 1990 Ford Ranger, failed to yield to the procession, which was eastbound on Crawford heading toward Roselawn Cemetery.
An officer near the rear of the procession attempted to pull the pickup over and the driver sped off.
The pickup turned on Prescott and led officers down several other streets in the area including Westchester, Delaware, Ohio and Elmhurst with speeds reaching near 50 mph. The pickup turned back onto Crawford and the pursuit was called off for safety concerns near the intersection of Crawford and Simpson after the driver reached speeds of 70 mph, according to police.
Good was arrested by Salina Police on a warrant without incident Thursday afternoon at his home in the 300 block of S. Woodward Road. He faces numerous requested charges related to the pursuit including fleeing and eluding law enforcement, reckless driving, failure to yield, following too close, driving while suspended, no proof of insurance and a vehicle registration violation.
