Rupert Man Swims Snake River To Elude Police

A 30-year-old south-central Idaho man is jailed after a pursuit that started with the theft of a sport utility vehicle and ended with a swim across the Snake River. The Times-News reports  Jason Hutcherson of Rupert was booked into the Mini-Cassia jail Tuesday evening on two counts of grand theft and other charges.  Minidoka County Sheriff Kevin Halverson says a woman reported seeing Hutcherson jump in her SUV and drive off Tuesday morning.  The driver eluded deputies. Jerome County officials say someone reported seeing the SUV in the Milner Dam area at about 3 p.m. An attempt to stop the vehicle resulted in a mile-long chase that dead-ended on a dirt road. Authorities say the driver got out and swam across the river. Hutcherson was spotted hiding in the rocks and arrested.
