Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon said the 41-year-old man has a history with local law enforcement, having been previously charged with DUI, theft, forgery and drug-related offenses. The chase began near Provo about 10:10 p.m. when a police officer attempted to pull over the suspect’s motorcycle.

Darrell Kuntz, 27, was riding with three other motorcyclists when they approached a turn in Interstate 80, near mile marker 179, and Kuntz failed to make the turn, said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Lawrence Hopper.
