(S.D.)-Chase Ended When Police Discover Small Child On Driver's Lap

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 11/08/2013 01:26 PM

    RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Officials say Rapid City police officers ended a slow-speed pursuit of a stolen car in the western South Dakota city when they realized the fleeing driver had a small child on her lap.
 
     Rapid City Police Department spokeswoman Tarah Heupel says that the car was allegedly taken from the Rapid City Public Library on Thursday by a woman who was left in the car while her friend visited the library.
 
     An officer spotted the car, but the driver refused to pull over, leading to a brief chase at speeds between 40 mph and 45 mph.
 
     When the car ran a red light, the officer ended the chase after spotting the unrestrained child.
 
     Officers say they have identified the suspect, and the investigation is ongoing.
