Chase Stevens had been in jail for 168 days on charges of aggravated eluding, marijuana possession and simple assault after the June 3 incident that authorities say stemmed from his breakup with his fiancee. The Argus Leader reports that Stevens accepted a plea deal in which he will serve 12 more days of jail time, and a two-year prison sentence will be suspended.

Authorities say Stevens assaulted a man who came to his fiancée's aid, tried to ram a pickup truck she was in and led officers on a chase through Minnehaha and Lincoln counties before driving into a ditch.
