OLATHE, Kan. — Johnson County Sheriff’s deputies say a driver who sped away from a DUI checkpoint potentially put their lives at risk.

Deputies were conducting a DUI checkpoint at K-10 and Evening Star Road between De Soto and Eudora Saturday morning.  The male reportedly entered the checkpoint “in an aggressive manner” – then took off.  The deputies used stop sticks on the vehicle, which stopped at K-10 and Cedar Creek Parkway in Lenexa.  The man ran away after the vehicle was stopped.

At about noon, deputies reported that the man was found, although details about his capture weren’t immediately available.
