Court Documents state that Summers was first spotted driving 65 in a 55MPH zone without plates in a Black Grand Prix on 110th Street. He then fled the area at speeds of over 100MPH weaving in and out of traffic. Once deputies caught up to him in Sioux City and attempted a traffic stop he continued to disobey traffic laws in an attempt to get away. Deputies observed Summers driving erratically, ignoring stop signs and construction zones.

The vehicle pursuit ended when Summers hit a parked car and then a no parking sign, he then fled on foot before being captured about a block away. The investigation found that Summers was in possession of ammunition, and drug paraphernalia. The vehicle was found to not have insurance or registration.

His next court appearance is scheduled for December 2nd at 9:00AM and his bail set at $15,000
