Wasilla man eluding troopers suffers frostbite

Posted: December 19, 2013 - 8:19am

FAIRBANKS — Alaska State Troopers a 20-year-old Wasilla man suffered frostbite and hypothermia after a foot chase in 20-below temperatures in Cantwell.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://is.gd/5A8mul ) says Samuel Wade was treated at a Fairbanks hospital before he was taken to Fairbanks Correctional Center Tuesday.

Troopers say Wade was the driver of a stolen vehicle found in a Parks Highway ditch. According to troopers, Wade ran off after troopers conducted a traffic stop on another car Wade had gotten a ride with.

Troopers say Wade led troopers on a chase that lasted more than an hour before he was caught by a trooper dog.

Troopers arrested Wade on charges including vehicle theft and resisting arrest. Wade also had an existing warrant for felony escape.

It’s unclear if Wade has an attorney.
