S.D. (AP) — A Mitchell man who was driving drunk when he led police on a high-speed chase through residential areas has been sentenced.
Eighteen-year-old Dahjrick Clark was sentenced to 75 days in jail, or about 2 ½ months behind bars. The Daily Republic newspaper reports that he also was ordered to pay more than $2,000 in restitution.
Clark was arrested May 26 after a chase that authorities say involved speeds approaching 100 mph in a 25 mph zone where other traffic and pedestrians were present. He pleaded guilty in October to aggravated eluding and second-offense drunken driving.
Judge Rodney Steele told Clark during his sentencing Tuesday that Clark’s actions put people’s lives in jeopardy.
