Speeding leads to several charges

A 27-year-old South Range man has been arrested for fleeing and eluding, operating while intoxicated and driving on a suspended license.

The arrest came early this morning, when deputies from the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department saw a pickup truck speeding on M-26 near Atlantic Mine.

The deputies attempted to stop the truck, but the driver took off.

He eventually stopped on Sixth Street in South Range.

The incident remains under investigation.
