A Kyle man injured in a fatal police chase in Rapid City has been charged with drunken driving and other crimes.
The Rapid City Police Department says 36-year-old Jimmy Pilcher was arrested Monday for driving under the influence, aggravated eluding, manslaughter and vehicular homicide.
He's recovering in a hospital. But police say he's been causing trouble, so he was arrested and the Pennington County Sheriff's Office will guard him until he's taken to jail.
Authorities were chasing Pilcher on Oct. 11 when his car ran a red light in Rapid City and was hit by another car. A passenger in that vehicle was killed and the driver and several others were injured in the crash that involved four vehicles.
Court records indicate Pilcher has a history of reckless driving.
