Felony pursuit ends in flames

On September 05, 2019 at about 7:45 p.m. County Deputies noticed a silver Volkswagen jetta strike a parked car then drove off.  Deputies went after the vehicle attempting to get them to stop.  One County deputy that was on foot stopped the vehicle then the vehicle tried to run over the deputy. A pursuit started with the vehicle going on Highway 91 then turning left on Alice then right on Pendleberry.  The vehicle drove to the end of Pendleberry to Christianson lane where it crashed through a fence.  The vehicle then drove into an Idaho State Police Troopers car then continued down Christenson lane.  The vehicle then drove through another fence into a cut grain field.  The Idaho State Police Trooper performed a PIT maneuver and the Silver Jetta stopped.  When the Jetta stopped it started on fire and the Trooper’s car also started on fire.  The trooper and the deputies were able to get both occupants out of the vehicle but both the Trooper’s car and the suspects cars burned to the ground. They were both a total loss. 

 

The driver of the Jetta a Beaumon C. Pandoah age 23 from Fort Hall was charged with DUI, Aggravated Batter on a certain person (a police officer).  Aggravated Assault time 3 on a certain person (police officers), Felony Pursuit.
