Bookmark and Share

Two men are behind bars after leading police on a pursuit in and around the city of Sioux Falls.

Police say the driver, 32-year-old LaKevis Tensley and the passenger, 25-year-old Brent Thomas, both of Sioux Falls were arrested just before 12 o'clock this morning near 6th Street and Lake Avenue.

According to police, the incident began when an employee at Cubby's near 12th Street and Jefferson Avenue noticed the vehicle that Tensley and Thomas were in sitting in a vehicle at a gas pump for a period of time and no one was getting gas. When police arrived, the two drove off.

They led police on a pursuit through town, and then proceeded to get on the interstate. They drove North on Interstate 29, then over an emergency median, only to head back South on I-29 where speeds reached 79 miles per hour. The vehicle got off the interstate at the Madison exit headed towards Kiwanis Avenue. It's there, that police stopped the pursuit.

Officer Sam Clemens said, "The officers have the ability to stop a pursuit at any time whether it's speed, the conditions, whether it's high traffic, anything like that."

The South Dakota Highway Patrol began pursuing the vehicle, when it eventually stopped. At one point, authorities saw something fly out the window of the vehicle near 10th Street and Western Avenue. They later found 4.6 grams of marijuana in the area.
    
Tensley and Thomas were arrested for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.
Tensley, the driver, was also arrested on a warrant, aggravated eluding, driving an unlicensed vehicle, driving with a revoked license, and open container.
