Deputies seek road rage driver who led officers on pursuit last week across areas of Boise, Meridian and ending in Kuna.
Ada County Sheriff’s deputies would like to know if anyone has information about a man who led officers on a vehicle pursuit through Boise and southern Ada County in the early morning hours of April 29.
The driver, who has not yet been identified, jumped out of a Jeep Liberty with flat tires near the Cloverdale/Poen roads intersection by Kuna. He just avoided getting stopped by a Meridian Police K-9 dog as he jumped over a fence.
Deputies say they suspect the same driver then stole an ATV from a nearby house and used it to get out of the area quickly.
Investigators have checked out several leads and would now like to ask the community if anyone knows who that driver is.
The pursuit started by a business in the 10000 block of Fairview Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. April 29 when someone called 911 and said a man driving a white Jeep Liberty was pointing a gun in the air and tried to ram into him as they were driving down the road.
An Ada County Sheriff’s deputy found the Jeep Liberty on Fairview moments later and tried to pull it over near the intersection of Eagle and Overland roads, but the driver took off.
He drove the Jeep as fast as 90 mph as the pursuit when south into Ada County.
Meridian Police were able to slow down the SUV by putting spike strips down on Poen Road.
Even then, the man drove the Jeep for over a mile on damaged tires before stopping on Cloverdale Road.
Deputies got a call a short time later about the stolen ATV, which they found in the 11000 block of Cloverdale Road – about two miles away from where it was taken from.
Officers also quickly figured out the Jeep was stolen from a Boise home some time the night before.
Anyone with information should call Ada County dispatch at 377-6790.
