Fugitive in high speed chase on Highway 200 faces felony charge

The man who ran a Missoula sheriff's patrol car off the road after a high speed chase from East Missoula to the Potomac Valley faces multiple criminal charges. Robert Brown, 36, was charged with criminal endangerment and fleeing from authorities. Brown is wanted on warrants in Florida and Oklahoma.

The Missoula County Sheriff's Office believes Brown has been in the area for around two months and has been involved in criminal activity in the county.

Officials told us they spotted him Tuesday night in Missoula.  But they say he refused to stop and deputies called off the chase when it hit unsafe speeds in the Missoula city limits.

Deputies located Brown's vehicle Wednesday morning and staked out the area. Brown appeared a little before noon and immediately fled along with a female passenger. The chase headed east on Highway 200 through Bonner and the winding stretch of road between Bonner and Potomac. Here Brown exceeded 100 miles per hour in his vehicle. By this point, deputies from Seeley Lake were headed west on 200 to box Brown in.

It all ended when Brown turned onto Peak View Lane outside of Potomac. He first forced a pursuing patrol car into a ditch at the intersection with Highway 200, then drove a few dozen yards up Peak View Lane before veering off and crashing into a stand of trees. Brown then took off on foot uphill toward homes in the area. Deputies eventually captured Brown on foot and took him and the female passenger into custody. No one was injured in the high speed chase.

Brown's bail was set at $150,000. He's still in custody.
