Vehicular eluding was one of 12 charges 21-year-old Andrew Burke was booked into jail for on October 18, 2013. Burke was suspected of driving a vehicle that wasn't his in a reckless manner that included jumping a curb and parking in someone's front yard. After our Traffic Safety deputy did not pursue, but remained in the area, dispatch received a call from a witness reporting a reckless driver matching the description of the vehicle deputies attempted to stop. Our Traffic Safety deputy was able to perform a traffic stop on the vehicle after locating it short time later in the same area of Bing Street and Royal Ann Way, Clifton. Burke's parents were driving the car at this time, and claimed to have no previous information about the dangerous driving behavior witnessed just minutes before.
Christopher Jacobsen, 28, of Grand Jct.
