An Anchorage man was arrested in Nikiski on Sunday following a high-speed car chase and a two-hour foot pursuit by a K-9 unit, according to a Jan. 18 affidavit filed at the Kenai Courthouse.
Shawn Seaman, 36, was allegedly driving south on the Kenai Spur Highway near South Miller Loop Road when Alaska State Troopers tried to pull him over for driving 67 miles per hour in a 55 mile-per-hour speed zone.
Seaman did not pull over and instead sped up, eventually turning onto Treasure Chest Avenue while driving an estimated 90 miles per hour, troopers said. Troopers noted in the affidavit that the road conditions were extremely icy at the time of the pursuit.
Seaman continued to speed through the residential neighborhood until he eventually parked his car at a residence on Wallers Street, troopers reported. Seaman then ran into the woods toward Lake Arness, according to the affidavit.
A K-9 unit was called in to search for Seaman, and after about two hours K-9 Donna located Seamon on Lake Arness near Maud Circle, troopers reported.
Seaman is on probation in Anchorage for a charge of second-degree burglary and does not have permission to travel to the Kenai Peninsula, according to the affidavit. Troopers reported finding in his car marijuana and several doses of buprenorphine, which is a controlled substance.
