High-speed chase ends in arrest
An Ogden man has been arraigned on two felony DUI charges and eight misdemeanor counts following a three-county high-speed chase that ended with his arrest. Chris Macfarlane, 57, led officers from six different agencies over 50 miles before being stopped on 12th Street in Ogden.
The chase began in Sardine Canyon at about mile marker 7, according to Mantua Police Chief Jim Jones, the officer who first spotted Macfarlane’s 1999 Nissan Altima traveling northbound on SR-89/91 at a high rate of speed.
Jones said he pursued the vehicle into Cache County before making a stop at about mile marker 15. As he stepped out of his patrol car and started toward the Altima, Macfarlane made a U-turn and sped back down the canyon at speeds well over 100 miles per hour. Jones said he terminated his role in the chase at mile marker 4, near the brake-check at the mouth of Sardine Canyon, but continued following the vehicle as other law enforcement officers arrived to assist.
