ALLENDALE TWP. — A 27-year-old Allendale man was lodged in the Ottawa County Jail following a chase and a crash shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

The man, whose name was withheld pending arraignment, suffered minor injuries in the crash. Deputies transported him to Holland Hospital, where he was treated and released, said Capt. John Wolffis of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies first became involved when a resident reported a 1998 GMC pickup truck missing.

Police located the missing pickup near 84th Avenue and Warner Street in Allendale Township and tried to stop it, but the suspect drove the truck east to the area of 48th Avenue and Warner. Wolffis said the man tried to turn onto 48th Avenue, but lost control and rolled the truck into a field. He was then arrested without incident.

The suspect was lodged in the county jail on charges of fleeing and eluding, driving on a suspended license, and felony operating while intoxicated.
