DAVIS COUNTY -- A man with no-bail warrants out for his arrest led police on a dangerous chase through Davis County Monday afternoon. It continued even after measures used to stop his fleeing car didn't work.

The chase started in Layton after an officer tried to pull the driver over for a temporary tag that looked doctored. Davis County sheriff's Sgt. Todd Richardson says the driver went through Clearfield, where officers tried to keep him contained in the Freeport Center. That's when he turned on police.

"Basically, he tried to force another officer off the road," Richardson said.

The chase kept going through parts of Syracuse and Clinton. Richardson says a pit maneuver and spike strips were used, but that only slowed the driver down instead of stopping him.

UHP Trooper Shane Nordfelt says the driver eventually lost control of his car at a T-intersection at 2300 North and 1000 West in Sunset and hit a pickup truck.

"That disabled both vehicles," Norfelt said. "The white Dodge truck was flipped up onto its top."

The driver of the truck received minor injuries but was transported to the hospital. The suspect and his female passenger had no injuries at all.

The driver, Tido Alves, 37, was arrested on drug and theft warrants. Investigators say he'll likely also be charged with evasion.
