High-Speed Chase in Cheyenne Leads to Arrest

Drunk Driving

A 45-year-old Cheyenne man has been arrested on suspicion of fourth offense DUI following a high-speed chase through Cheyenne early Sunday morning.

Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says an officer saw a green Buick cross over the center line near the intersection of E. Lincolnway and Logan Avenue and when they tried to stop the vehicle the driver took off.

“There was a pursuit through town and the suspect, Fredrick Taylor, ended up out at 300 E. Prosser,” said Malatesta. “Speeds did get up to, at one point in time, about 70 mph, but that looks like that was on the S. Greeley Highway.”

“Taylor exited his vehicle when he got into 300 E. Prosser there and attempted to run into a house,” Malatesta added. “Officers were able to apprehend him before he entered the house and upon concluding their investigation they determined he was under the influence.”

Taylor was arrested for fleeing and eluding, driving under suspension, DUI and driving without a certified interlock device. He also had an outstanding warrant for failure to pay.

“Nobody was hurt in the pursuit,” said Malatesta. “No vehicles were crashed or anything like that.”
