MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho (KLIX)-A 25-year-old Washington man is behind bars following a high-speed police pursuit in a Jeep Tuesday on the interstate near Mountain Home. According to Idaho State Police, Kyle Sherwood, 25, was charged with eluding an officer and grand theft for running from Mountain Home Police and ISP troopers Tuesday afternoon. Allegedly the man had left a gas station without paying and it was later learned the Jeep had been stolen out of Colorado. The driver got on Interstate 84 and headed west reaching speeds of more than 100 mph, according to ISP. Troopers used a spike stripe to stop the Jeep, which deflated the tires, but the driver continued on into Ada County. The driver got off the interstate where a trooper was able to use his patrol car to stop the Jeep. Sherwood was taken to a Boise hospital for treatment and later released into police custody.
