Troopers arrest suspect in high-speed chase

Posted: Friday, July 30, 2010

FAIRBANKS - Alaska State Troopers say they have arrested a 41-year-old Fairbanks man suspected of evading officers earlier this year in a chase that reached speeds of 100 mph.

David W. Wiebe was charged Monday with felony failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer. He's also charged with misdemeanor reckless driving and driving with a revoked license.

Troopers say an officer early April 29 spotted Wiebe pull into the parking lot of a bar and recognized him as someone who had a revoked license.

Troopers say Wiebe let a woman passenger dismount from his motorcycle, then took off.

The chase wound out north of Fairbanks, with the suspect at one point driving onto a bike path along Farmers Loop to avoid patrol cars blocking the roadway. The pursuit eventually was called off for safety reasons.
