Pahrump police chase suspect in suspect's own car

Posted by Neil Shouse | Oct 22, 2014 | 0 Comments

On Saturday, Nye County police arrested Pahrump resident David Plinske following a confrontation which culminated with him driving off in a cop car and officers chasing him with Plinske's own car. He also allegedly wrestled a cop and egged on the police, even telling them to shoot him. Police were already familiar with Plinkse from previous encounters and knew him to act erratically.

This latest incident began with police pulling over Plinkse for driving close to 100 mph in a 35 mph zone on state Route 160, and it ended near the Parhump Courthouse. Since the police saw Plinkse was unarmed, they elected not to use firearms on him and instead employed pepper spray. The officers have been commended by the Nye County Sheriff for showing restraint.

Bail was set at $20,000, and Plinske bonded out on Monday. He will be charged with various felonies including intimidating police officers, auto-theft, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
