Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Deputies have arrested two people accused of possessing drugs and fleeing officers.

On February 9th, at approximately 4:37 p.m., a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted to stop a maroon Lincoln Town Car for a traffic violation on I-15 south near milepost 116.

The vehicle failed to stop and the deputy became worried that the vehicle’s hood, which was attached with a bungee cord, could obstruct the driver’s view.

The deputy attempted to get in front of the vehicle when the suspect rammed the back of the deputy’s police cruiser.

The deputy was able to force the vehicle into a snow covered median where it stopped.

The driver fled the car on foot and was quickly apprehended by deputies while the passenger remained in the vehicle.

The driver, identified as Christopher W. Hudson, 33, of Idaho Falls was found to have active felony warrants for his arrest from the Idaho Department of Corrections.

The passenger, identified as Bryan J. Beck, 26, of Idaho Falls had an active warrant out of Bonneville County for Probation Violation.

Deputies found drug paraphernalia and four ounces of methamphetamine inside the vehicle.

Both men were booked into the Bonneville County Jail for their warrants and felony drug trafficking.

Hudson was charged with aggravated battery for ramming the police cruiser.
