Togiak Man Arrested Following Chase

A Togiak man was arrested after a 4-wheeler chase last Thursday night.  Around 11:30, the Togiak VPSO spotted a man recklessly driving a 4 wheeler and tried to stop him. The man, identified as 22 year old Charles Smeaton Junior then sped away.  The VPSO chased after Smeaton until the 4 wheeler’s chain broke.  Smeaton then ran off on foot before the VPSO caught up and arrested him. 

He found that Smeaton had several bottles of liquor in his possession.  Smeaton was taken to Dillingham on charges of reckless driving, failure to stop, driving under the influence, and importation of alcohol.
