FORT PIERRE, S.D. (KCCR) – A Rapid City man was arrested Friday in Stanley County following an incident that began in Lyman County. Authorities say the call began in Presho as a possible domestic disturbance. The Lyman County Sheriff’s Office responded to the location of an altercation that took place between the driver and several passengers in a blue Mazda. As Sheriff’s deputies made contact with 30 year-old Daniel True Blood of Rapid City, True Blood fled the scene with a 20-month-old female who was in the back seat at the time.

Law enforcement pursued the Mazda from Presho to U.S. Highway 83 north toward Fort Pierre. Multiple law enforcement units ended the pursuit several miles south of Fort Pierre. As the Mazda entered Fort Pierre, it attempted to pass two northbound pick-ups towing campers. The Mazda also struck a Jeep that was in a turn lane attempting to turn east. The female driver of the Jeep was not injured. The Mazda continued west out of Fort Pierre on Highway 14-34.

The Mazda stopped for law enforcement at mile marker 147. True Blood was taken into custody. The 20 month-old female was found safe in the back seat and was returned to her mother. True Blood was taken to the Hughes County Jail. Charges in multiple counties are pending.
