PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Pierre area officials took part in a pursuit with a Pierre man this morning and planned to issue a warrant for his arrest today. Sergeant Darin Johnson of the Hughes County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Bradley Reum was in the lobby of the Hughes County Jail this morning awaiting 24/7 sobriety testing when he fled the facility just before he was to be checked. Jailers advised other law officers that Reum was running from the lock-up about 8:40 a.m. this morning and he was spotted by a deputy from the Stanley County Sheriff’s Office–who was just leaving the jail at the time. Chief Deputy Greg Swanson was in his patrol car and followed Reum’s vehicle. Johnson says Reum refused to stop. The vehicle pursuit ended near the intersection of Park and Harrison Avenues when Reum’s vehicle jumped a curb and the four door sedan hit an electric utility box owned by the city. Reum exited the car and fled on foot. Law enforcers canvassed the area, looking for Reum, but were unable to locate him in that vicinity. Johnson says Reum is not considered a danger, but indicated earlier today that a warrant was to be issued for his arrest. Agencies that were involved in this morning’s pursuit and search included the Pierre Police Department, Hughes and Stanley County Sheriff’s Offices, South Dakota Highway Patrol and U.S. Marshal’s Service. Officials also utilized a scent dog from the Highway Patrol in the earlier search. Reum is described as being 5’5” and weighing 130 lbs. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone that knows of his whereabouts should call 9-1-1.
