High Speed Chase — A Huntingdon man was arrested on multiple charges following a March 10 high speed chase in Huntingdon.
Robert C. Lange, 26, was charged with DUI (fourth offense), felony evading, driving while license revoked, and speeding. According to the report by Officer Christopher Cole, he was on patrol at around 7:20 p.m. when he observed a black 2006 Ford Ranger driven by Lange traveling 49 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone on Buena Vista Road. When Cole activated his blue lights, Lange initially pulled over in the Little General parking lot but then sped off again on Buena Vista Road when Cole exited his patrol car. Cole got back in his patrol car and pursued Lange, who veered into oncoming traffic in order to pass slower moving vehicles. Lange turned right on Veterans Drive, and at one point, Lange’s vehicle reached a speed of 100 mph before Lange finally pulled over near the Highway 22 on-ramp. While speaking with Lange, Cole observed that Lange had bloodshot eyes, his speech was slurred, and he smelled strongly of alcohol. A computer check revealed that Lange’s license was revoked with the condition that he was not allowed to drive without an interlock ignition device, which was not present in the vehicle he was driving. Cole took Lange into custody and transported him to the Carroll County Jail, where he performed poorly on field sobriety tests.
