A 29-year-old man was arrested for fleeing and eluding police in Clare County on Tuesday, December 15.

Police say the Clare County Sheriff’s Department was investigating a report of a stolen GMC Denali from Isabella County, which was last seen heading north to Farwell. The vehicle was discovered near Red’s Oakridge Gas Station. Police say the driver fled the area, driving through a yard where a woman jumped from the SUV.

The driver backed out of the snow bank, ramming a patrol vehicle before heading through a farm field near McKinley Ave. where he got stuck. He attempted to flee on foot but was caught and arrested.

There’s no information about the woman in the vehicle.
