Name: Shane Michael Sifrit
The story: While traveling westbound on Forest Avenue, officers observed a small black car driving westbound on Forest with no lights on. The suspect, later identified as Sifrit, turned south on 24th Street, and officers were able to catch up to him. Officers activated their lights and sirens, and Sifrit refused to stop. Once Sifrit reached Forest Avenue, he turned eastbound and rapidly accelerated. He continued east and ran three stop signs. When Sifrit arrived at 7th Street, he turned northbound and “slow waved” at officers and then took off again until he hit a light pole. Sifrit then put his hands up and crawled out of the window on his stomach where he was placed into custody without incident. Sifrit was transported to the Polk County Jail and charged with insufficient number of headlights, obedience to traffic control device, driving while license denied, cancelled, suspended or revoked, eluding/attempting to elude (under 25 mph excess) and failure to maintain control.
