Man arrested after what police call a brief pursuit in La Salle and Peru

Posted by wlpo on December 22, 2014

A traffic stop that started in La Salle eventually ended in Peru and left a man from Peru facing a serious charge.

Zachary Savitch of Peru was arrested around 2am Sunday for aggravated fleeing and attempting to elude police, a class four felony, and unlawful possession of cannabis, a less serious charge.

Police say they briefly chased Savitch from La Salle to Seventh and Monks Streets in Peru. Savitch was given a handful of ticketed for allegedly running stop signs and speeding. He was being held in the La Salle County Jail with his bond set at $10,000.
