Utah Man Who Thought He Was Wanted Flees, Gets Arrested

SANDY — He ran from police because he thought he had warrants out for his arrest. Turns out he didn’t have any outstanding warrants at all.

But after leading police on a chase and hopping fences in an attempt to escape before eventually being bitten and caught by a police dog, a 37-year-old man ended up being arrested anyway.

Just after 1:30 a.m., a Sandy police officer spotted a car on 900 East between 9000 South and 9400 South and discovered that the driver didn’t have any insurance, said Sandy Police Sgt. Justin Chapman. The officer attempted to pull the driver over, but the man fled, believing he had a warrant out for his arrest.

The man abandoned the car near 100 West and 8750 South and then ran. He jumped over fences and ran through backyards, Chapman said.

A K9 from the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office was called and tracked down the man. The dog bit the fleeing man on the left bicep, causing only superficial injuries.

Randy Quigley was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of fleeing, reckless driving, driving without a license and no insurance. Chapman said detectives were trying to determine Tuesday if the car he was driving was stolen or loaned to him by a friend.
