Marsing Police Chase Lands 1 Man In Jail
Deputies have arrested the suspect in a high-speed chase that ended at Marsing High School Thursday morning.
The man reportedly crashed his car in a field during the chase, then ran through the school, and back out again, where law enforcement officials eventually found and arrested him.
The school was put into lockdown as deputies with the Owyhee County Sheriff's Office and Idaho State Police officers responded. The lockdown was lifted around 10:30 a.m.
Authorities say the chase began about 18 miles from the Oregon border on U.S. Highway 95. Chief Deputy Lynn Bowman says a deputy chased the suspect at high speeds before the man crashed his car into a corn field behind Marsing High School.
Deputies chased the man on foot before arresting him on school grounds. It's not clear if the man was taken into custody peacefully.
Deputies and police are expected be at the high school processing evidence for several hours.
