Convicted Eluder Eludes Troopers in Big Lake Chase

Alaska State Troopers attempted to pull over a man on an off-road motorcycle on a no-bail warrant for failure to remand on charges of Eluding and Assault, but, after a chase, he successfully eluded them.

At 1 am this morning, troopers observed Brian W Berean, known to have a warrant, operating a yellow off-road motorcycle on the roadway on Shotgun Drive near Big Lake Road and attempted to pull him over.

At that point, troopers broke off their pursuit on Big Lake Road.

Berean faces charges of Eluding and Reckless Driving.
