IRON MOUNTAIN - A Felch man was arrested for fleeing and eluding and operating while intoxicated on Thursday night following a vehicle chase in northern Dickinson County.

Lt. Derek Dixon of the Dickinson County Sheriff's Office said that deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle at about 10:30 p.m. on M-69 near Quarry Road.

The vehicle accelerated and deputies initiated a pursuit, said Lt. Dixon.

The vehicle travelled through Felch, turned onto Metropolitan Road, then turned onto Church Road.
