BOZEMAN — The Bozeman Police Department asks the public not to drink and drive this holiday weekend after officers assisted several law enforcement agencies in arresting a suspected DUI driver early Sunday morning.
A Facebook post says the department, along with the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, Belgrade Police Department, and Montana Highway Patrol engaged the driver in a low-speed vehicle chase that began near Belgrade and ended near Bozeman.
According to the post, spike strips were deployed "to help bring the pursuit to a safe ending."
The driver reportedly has several prior DUI convictions and is being held on a felony DUI charge at the Gallatin County Detention Center.
Bozeman PD urges people who choose to drink to arrange for a designated driver or sober ride ahead of time.
