FARMINGTON, Mo. (AP) A suburban St. Louis man who was on probation for leading
police on a chase four years ago has been sentenced to prison for committing the
same offense this year.

The Park Hills Daily Journal reports
(http://bit.ly/pPIOSj ) that 41-year-old Timothy Dean, of St. Peters, was
sentenced late last week to 10 years in prison by a St. Francois (FRAN’-sihs)
County judge. Dean had been convicted of driving while intoxicated, resisting
arrest by fleeing and violating probation.

Dean was arrested June 23
after a Farmington officer tried to stop a speeding vehicle on U.S. 67. Police
said Dean drove off at speeds up to 100 mph before officers flattened his tires
with spike strips.

Dean was already on probation for leading Iron and St. Francois county officers on a chase in January 2007.
