3-county police chase leads to standoff in Marion


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ Turner County Sheriff Byron Nogelmeier says a man who led law enforcement on a high-speed, three-county chase is now holed up in his grandmother's Marion home and is holding a teenage relative hostage.


Nogelmeier tells KSFY-TV that officers are trying to calm the suspect but negotiations aren't going well.


Police tried to pull the man over about 8 p.m. Sunday in Sioux Falls on suspicion he absconded parole.


Instead of stopping, the man floored it. Authorities backed off the pursuit because the man's erratic driving put others at risk.


Officials say the suspect is considered dangerous. A SWAT vehicle arrived at the home just north of city hall and next to a park.


Marion, a town with fewer than 100 residents, is an hour southwest of Sioux Falls.
