Matthew Buckskin, 29, was cited for a hit and run on North Pacific Ave. in Old Town Pocatello Wednesday night. Officers found Buckskin intoxicated inside a bar and warned him not to drive until he was sober.
A few hours later, officers engaged Buckskin in a high-speed pursuit through Pocatello, Chubbuck and into Fort Hall where the chase was called off.
He was later arrested on a warrant and booked into the Bannock County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
