Hucks: Caught In High-Speed Chase

Nels Mitchell, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Sen. Jim Risch’s seat, didn’t know what to do when he was caught in the middle of a high-speed chase on Long Bridge in Sandpoint last Sunday. Nels, who was campaigning in North Idaho at the time, was enjoying a morning walk when 15-year-old Kamil Stuchlik, of Kailua, Hawaii, roared past him in an SUV with Bonner County deputies pursuing. “I didn’t know whether to jump in the lake (Pend Oreille) or not,” Nels told Huckleberries. “It was like something out of the movies.” Officers used a spike strip at the northern end of Long Bridge and a patrol car to finally stop Stuchlik. Who’s in a whole lot of trouble now/DFO, Sunday Huckleberries. More here.
