A man charged with multiple counts stemming from a drunk driving and police chase that began in the Village of Pinckney has been sentenced.
26-year-old Lucas Erway of Plainwell, which is north of Kalamazoo, was sentenced in Livingston County Circuit Court and ordered to spend 90 days in jail with credit for one day served. He received two years of probation and will be placed on a scram tether for alcohol and location monitoring for six months after being released from jail.
Erway was charged last October with 3rd degree fleeing a police officer, operating while intoxicated, and three counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer. He earlier pleaded no contest to all charges and court records stated that he had a lack of memory due to intoxication.
Officers with the Pinckney Police Department were on the lookout for a pick-up truck traveling on Dexter-Pinckney Road that was failing to maintain lanes. The vehicle was located on East Main Street, near Pearl Street. After stopping the truck, Erway fled north on D-19. A low-speed pursuit ended in the City of Howell, where Erway stopped and surrendered to police without incident.
