Rapid City suspect subdued after car, foot chase

RAPID CITY S.D. – A Rapid City man is facing charges after leading police on a chase which ended up with him being tased.

In the early-morning hours of Saturday, police arrested 26-year-old Manning Richards of Rapid City.

Police were called to a residence on Phil Court in Rapid City when Richards allegedly destroyed private property and assaulted someone. According to Sgt. Phillips with the Rapid City Police Department, Richards got in a car and drove away before police arrived.

Police said Richards drove erratically after he left the residence, and that they received multiple calls reporting him. Eventually, they tracked down the car Richards was in and stopped the car in the 100 block of Doolittle Street.

Phillips said Richards then fled on foot. After catching up to him, police say he was combative, so they subdued him with a taser and arrested him.

Richards faces charges of disorderly conduct, driving under the influence, obstructing police, aggravated alluding, and possessing marijuana.
