Corporal Jared Beck of the Power County Sheriff's Office was injured during a high-speed pursuit of Marcos Alarcon-Lozano, 32, of Aberdeen on Sunday, Feb. 28.

Beck first observed Alarcon-Lozano as he was speeding on SH 39 between American Falls and Aberdeen. When Beck attempted to stop the vehicle, Alarcon-Lozano instead tried to outrun Beck's vehicle.

Alarcon-Lozano was clocked with the radar driving as fast as 126 miles per hour before he pulled to the side of the road, allegedly threw a beer can out of his window, and started running across a field.

Beck was joined in the foot pursuit by Officer Dave Chavez of the American Falls Police Department and Corporal David Mack of the Aberdeen Police Department.

Beck was injured during the foot pursuit.

Alarcon-Lozano was found by Chavez and Mack allegedly attempting to hide in a ditch. He has been charged with felony eluding an officer, open container, destruction of evidence, resisting arrest, and DUI second offense pending the outcome of a blood test.
