STANDING ROCK, N.D. - A man is behind bars after leading Standing Rock tribal officers on a high speed chase Tuesday evening.

Standing Rock officials say 27-year-old Michael Baker kept driving when officers tried to pull him over for not having tags on his vehicle.

Officials say they later found out the car was stolen out of Bismarck. Baker drove North on Highway 24 and when an officer tried to block the road off, he is accused of trying to hit the officer.

Officials say 15 miles into the chase, the Highway Patrol plane helped. Morton County deputies and troopers tried to spike the car but were unsuccessful.

Standing Rock officials say Baker got out of his car and ran into a home. Officers say they tried to get an answer at the door and when they didn’t they rammed it open.

Officials say Baker has 27 charges, including stolen vehicle, resisting arrest, fleeing a law enforcement officer and drugs.
