RONAN — A 21-year-old Ronan man was hit with a taser and is currently being held on charges of theft, DUI and eluding police after leading local law enforcement on a 15-minute chase on a stolen ATV. According to Lake County Undersheriff Dan Yonkin, Leroy Black II allegedly reached speeds of 60 m.p.h. while fleeing police before he crashed the ATV in a field off Moiese Valley Road near Round Butte Road.

According to Yonkin, Lake County dispatch received a report at 2:16 a.m. on May 4 that someone had stolen an ATV from a resident on Carbine Road near Ronan. Lake County deputies and tribal police quickly located the stolen ATV, driven allegedly by Black, and pursued him for 15 minutes in a high-speed chase. After the ATV crashed, Black was hit with a taser and then transported to St. Luke’s Hospital for injuries he suffered in the crash.
