DA)--For the second time this week, Enid Police Department officers arrested a man following a vehicle pursuit Tuesday evening that at one point exceeded speeds more than 80 mph and left a railroad crossing gate damaged. Enid News and Eagle reports 20 year-old Damian Grim was arrested on complaints of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, eluding, possession of drug paraphernalia and two complaints of leaving the scene of an accident. The incident began just before 7:50 Tuesday night when police were dispatched to a report of a possible stolen vehicle out of Grant County. An officer saw the vehicle at 500 S. Tyler before the vehicle took off westbound on Oklahoma, and a pursuit was started. The suspect, later identified as Grim, led police on an extended pursuit while running stops signs, hitting railroad tracks and a crossing gate before eventually ending at 6th and Randolph following a short foot pursuit. A number of units were involved in the pursuit, including a Garfield County Sheriff’s Deputy, before Grim was taken into custody.
