(MISSOULA)- A 42-year old fugitive from Washington was apprehended following a long high speed chase out of Missoula last night.
KGVO Radio reports John Fischer first drew the attention of Missoula Police on West Broadway, and took off to the east after officers tried to stop him. The chase went through East Missoula and east all the way to Clearwater Junction, where Missoula County Sheriff's deputies were finally able to disable Fischer's car with "stop sticks" thrown across the highway to puncture his tires.
Fischer was wanted on several charges, including criminal endangerment because of his past driving.
It was the second time in a month Missoula officers started a pursuit that extended outside the city.
