High speed chase suspect appears in Court

In the early morning hours of May 6, Brian Unger, 26, of Longmont, led Grand County law enforcement officers on a half-hour long high speed chase, according to court documents.

Unger was arrested in Boulder County on July 29 after law enforcement officers were called to a domestic disturbance, said Grand County Sheriff Rod Johnson.

He was arrested for burglary, trespassing and attempted assault in connection with the domestic disturbance, Johnson said.

The pursuit of Unger started in Fraser and ended west of Kremmling when law enforcement abandoned the chase because it became too dangerous, the documents indicate. Law enforcement authorities in Routt County were informed of the chase at the time but were also unable to apprehend Unger.

During the chase in Grand County, Unger avoided three stop-sticks set out by law enforcement and reached speeds in excess of 100 mph.

During his arrest processing officials in Boulder County discovered there was a warrant for Unger in Grand County.

Unger bonded out of jail in Boulder County and was given a court date in Grand County. After appearing in court in Grand County this week, Unger was given instruction to go to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office for fingerprinting.

Unger has been charged with vehicular eluding, a Class 5 Felony, according to court documents.
