Jonathan Haley, 23, was in Gogebic County District Court Tuesday.  He was sentenced to 45 days in jail with credit for 36 days on two charges: fleeing and eluding a police officer in the fourth degree and one count of OWI.  He also has to pay more than $1,200 in fines.

Police say Haley was riding a four-wheeler in the middle of U.S. 2 in Bessemer Township in September when he failed to stop for police.  He reportedly ended up crashing into a building before fleeing on foot and eventually running into a metal clothesline pole.
