Slow Driving Causes Police Chase To Last For Hour

Posted: Updated:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - One man is behind bars after having an hour long police chase because he was driving so slowly.

It started around 3a.m. Monday, when East Lansing Police say they spotted a man heading north on I-127 at about 25 miles an hour. They tried to pull him over, but they say he wouldn't stop.

He crossed into Clinton County, so deputies there tried to pull him over, but he still wouldn't stop.

Stop sticks took out a front tire near DeWitt Road, but the man continued. They tried a second set of stop sticks after he turned onto Grand River, but again he wouldn't stop.

By time the chase ended, he was going slow enough that a deputy reached into the car, put it in park and pulled the driver from the vehicle.

Deputies tell 6 News Richard Hicks faces charges of fleeing and alluding, resisting and obstructing, and driving without a license for the second time.

The 61-year-old Lansing man is currently at the Clinton County Jail.
