24-year-old David James Winters of Rapid City was arrested by Sioux Falls Police after a wild chase through Downtown.

On Friday around 2:00 p.m. a 2001 Four Door Dodge Dakota Pickup was reported stolen. A little later police received a report of a red truck driving recklessly near the intersection of 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue. Authorities saw the stolen vehicle near 26th St. and Yeager and attempted to make a stop. 

Winters stopped for a moment near 24th St. and Cliff Ave., but took off at a high rate of speed. Police went after the truck but decided to call off the pursuit because of the excessive speed. The pickup was then spotted by authorities driving through the grass of McKennan Park then blow through a stop sign at 18th Street and 2nd Avenue going 70 mph.  That's where police lost sight of the Dodge.

According to eye witness reports, Winters ran red lights at 14th Street and 2nd Avenue, 11th Street and 2nd Avenue and 10th Street and 2nd Avenue going about 70-90 mph.

Winters lost control of the Dodge on the curve north of 10th Street and 2nd Avenue when it skidded out of control and slammed into the north side of the First National Bank. Police arrested Winters as he was climbing out of the truck, suffering non-life threatening injuries.

Winters is charged with Theft of a Vehicle, Aggravated Eluding, DWI and numerous traffic violations.

No one was injured during the pursuit and there was minimal damage to the building.
