An early morning chase that began in Davis County ended on I-84 near mm 40, after troopers spiked the tires of a vehicle out of Arizona, arresting Roger Kennedy, 57. According to Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Lee Perry, the chase began just before 1 a.m., Friday after Weber Dispatch was advised by Davis UHP of a white Mitsubishi with Arizona registration heading northbound on I-15.  Troopers in Weber County located the vehicle as it headed into Box Elder County.  Those troopers followed the suspect vehicle at speeds of 75 to 95 mph. Box Elder County Sheriff’s deputies set up spikes at mm 372 near the Honeyville exit.  The lead trooper activated his emergency equipment prior to the spikes.  The suspect attempted to evade the troopers but the spikes were successfully deployed to the front passenger tires. Although the driver slowed to speeds of about 45 mph, the car continued off of I-15 onto I-84.  The lead trooper successfully used a pit immobilization technique and brought the vehicle to a stop, about 1:30 a.m. Kennedy was arrested for DUI and appeared to be under the influence of drugs.  He was treated for a scrape on the arm and booked into the Box Elder County Jail.  He told officers he was headed for West Valley.
