A man who allegedly fled from Lincoln police and caused a temporary disruption to a school has been charged with felony reckless endangerment and fleeing police, court documents show.
Michael Fee, 40, of Menoken, was arrested just after 11 a.m. Tuesday by Lincoln police with assistance from a North Dakota Highway Patrol K-9 unit and airplane, police say.
Fee allegedly fled as police tried to make a traffic stop, according to an affidavit. Part of the chase went past Lincoln Elementary School, and Fee’s vehicle at one point allegedly caused damage to a lawn and lawn sprinklers. The chase reached speeds of 47 mph in a 15 mph zone, the affidavit says.
Fee made his initial appearance Wednesday in South Central District Court. He is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $25,000 bail. Court documents show he also has two open drug cases, with trials scheduled in December and January.
No attorney is listed for him in court documents.
