Bookmark and Share

A South Dakota man will spend the next 6 years in prison for his 8th DUI and assaulting a police officer.

In January, 52-year-old David Mortensbak was arrested after he was caught driving the wrong way on a one way.

When police pulled Mortensbak over, he punched the officer in the face and took off.

The officer then chased Mortensbak through Sioux Falls where he eventually hit a parked truck.

When officers tried to get Mortensbak to shut off his vehicle he once again tried to take off, but because of an icy road he didn't go far and was eventually apprehended with the help of a police dog.

Mortensbak slammed the car door on the dog several times however the K-9 unit was unharmed.
 
His blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit.
