The Spokesman-Review

Above is a video showing a 24-minute police chase last weekend that ended with the arrest of Sergey A. Alekseyev, 19.

A sheriff's Air-1 tracked Alekseyev's 1996 Honda Accord from northbound Freya Street to the 5800 block of Yale Road.
 
The pursuit began just after midnight Saturday when Alekseyev allegedly sped up behind Cpl. Dave Ellis in the 1800 block of Greene Sreet, then refused to stop and sped away on Illinois Avenue at about 60 mph. Read more here.
