The chase began with a report of a possible drunk driver near Ulm.
A Montana Highway Patrol saw the suspect vehicle and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver sped away.
The suspect got off of I-15 and led the trooper into Great Falls along 10th Avenue South. The chase continued into the Gibson Flats/Sand Coulee area southeast of Great Falls.
The suspect then headed back into Great Falls, and eventually headed out of town along Northwest Bypass and toward Sun Prairie.
Officers deployed spike strips, which disabled the vehicle. The suspect then ran away into nearby fields.
The search for the suspect included officers from the MHP, Cascade County Sheriff's Office, Great Falls Police Department, and the Vaughn Fire Department. A drone was also used to survey the fields and area in and around Sun Prairie.
There is no indication that the suspect is armed, and Trooper Arnold of the MHP says that there is no public danger.
As of Saturday afternoon, the Sheriff's Office says that the suspect has not been apprehended.
