(KSL News) A group of students decided to celebrate their graduation by leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase.
A Tooele County sheriff's deputy found the group when he was called to a party in the west desert where someone needed medical attention.
Several of the kids jumped in a car and took off, heading down I-80 toward Salt Lake. Speeds reached 100 miles an hour, and the driver was reported to be driving on the shoulder. The chase finally ended when officers spiked the tires near 8400 West.
Sgt. Jason Sparks said, "The worst scenario at the party [was that] he could have been arrested for DUI, which is a class B misdemeanor. He chose to try and elude, evade, which is now a felony."
The driver and his three passengers were taken into custody.
