WINNER-A Winner man is wanted for his alleged involvement in a police pursuit while two children were in his vehicle.

On Feb. 23, an on-duty Winner police officer saw a silver Dodge Durango driven by Deidrick Old Lodge heading west on U.S. Highway 18. According to court documents, the officer reportedly got confirmation that Old Lodge's license had been revoked and relocated him.

While Old Lodge had the window of the vehicle rolled down, the officer told him he had an active warrant out of Lyman County and told him to pull over, at which time Old Lodge allegedly drove away.

The officer activated his emergency lights and a pursuit began. Old Lodge allegedly made six southbound and eastbound turns during the chase, beginning at the intersection of Highway 18 and Van Buren Street and ending at a blue house on 279th Street, a little over half a mile south of Winner.

During the chase, Old Lodge allegedly ran seven stop signs and twice turned his vehicle into the oncoming lane of traffic, coming close to hitting another patrol car.

When Old Lodge stopped at the house on 279th Street, police reportedly saw a woman and two children who had been in the car throughout the incident.

A warrant was issued Feb. 27 for Old Lodge, who is charged with aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, two counts of abuse of a minor, aggravated eluding, resisting arrest and reckless driving. If convicted on all counts, he could be incarcerated for up to 49 years.
