Idaho State Police Troopers responded to assist Mountain Home Police on March 1, 2022 after the driver of a Jeep fled a traffic stop. The Jeep’s driver had reportedly driven off without paying for gas in Mountain Home. Officers then found the Jeep was recently reported stolen out of Colorado. When the driver of the Jeep left Mountain Home, he continued onto Interstate 84 at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
ISP Troopers located the Jeep on the westbound interstate and were able to deploy spike strips just inside the Ada County line. The spike strips deflated the Jeep’s tires but the vehicle continued and exited the interstate. A Trooper attempted a PIT maneuver which stopped the stolen vehicle. The driver was treated and released at a Boise hospital. Troopers booked Kyle J. Sherwood, 25, of Washington state into the Ada County Jail on Grand Theft and Eluding an Officer.
