Iowan gets 15 years in case that included SD chase

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 27-year-old Sergeant Bluff man has been given 15 years for forgery and his actions during a police chase.

The Sioux City Journal says (http://bit.ly/15dbnac) Brandon Miller had been passing counterfeit money. He was sentenced in Woodbury County District Court on Monday. He’d pleaded guilty on June 13 to forgery, eluding and assault on a peace officer.

Miller drove a pickup truck and originally fled authorities in North Sioux City, S.D., in March. The chase went down Interstate 29 and off into a neighborhood, where Miller crashed into two police vehicles, injuring a deputy. The chase ended when Miller crashed into a truck.

Police said Miller and two other people had used counterfeit bills at one store and that a clerk at another store refused to take the counterfeit money.
