Orin Sam Zurfluh is also charged with reckless driving and giving false information.
WASILLA, Alaska (AP) A 34-year-old Anchorage man who led Alaska State Troopers on a 5-mile pursuit north of Wasilla has been charged with three felonies.
Orin Sam Zurfluh is charged with vehicle theft, felony eluding and felony driving under the influence.
He's also charged with reckless driving and giving false information.
Online court records do not list an attorney for Zurfluh.
Troopers early Monday morning tried to stop the driver of a pickup near Mile 40 Parks Highway.
Troopers say he drove at high speeds, ran stop signs and drove through shopping center and high school parking lots before stopping in Wasilla.
The pickup had been stolen from an Anchorage hotel.
Troopers say Zurfluh's license was suspended and he has twice been convicted of DUI in the last 10 years.
