STANTON — Logan Perkins would have only received a speeding ticket had he stopped for a Montcalm County Sheriff’s officer Tuesday night.
Instead, he allegedly fled, wreaking havoc in the quiet village of McBride, and is now facing a felony charge.
Perkins, 20, Edmore, was arraigned Tuesday in 64B District Court. He is charged with fleeing and eluding in the third degree.
According to Montcalm County Sheriff’s Lt. Steve Russell, Sgt. Andrew Dozema witnessed Perkins allegedly driving 75 miles per hour north of McBride on Tuesday evening. Dozema turned his vehicle around and turned his lights and sirens on, indicating for Perkins to pull over.
Perkins allegedly tried to flee the officer instead, taking his vehicle down a private drive, then a two track before coming out into the village of McBride.
Dozema pursued Perkins through town as Perkins allegedly drove through people’s yards. Perkins drove out of town and then suddenly stopped.
“Nobody got hurt,” Russell said. “There was minor damage where he went through people’s yards.”
