A 53-year-old Manning man sped from an attempted traffic stop Saturday night near Gray, ditched his car in that town and was tracked by a police dog and arrested, according to court records.

Delaine Glenn Petersen is charged with eluding, marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession and interference with official acts, among several traffic citations. The most serious charge is punishable by up to two years in prison.

An Audubon County deputy sheriff attempted to stop Petersen about 4 miles west of Gray about 10:40 p.m., court records show.

Petersen allegedly sped away to Gray at speeds of up to 94 mph and ran from his car in the 200 block of Second Avenue.

“K-9 Axel tracked him and located him where he was hiding,” a sheriff’s press release said.

Petersen allegedly threw a glass pipe as he ran, but the dog found it. He is accused of possessing a small amount of marijuana when he was arrested.

Petersen paid $2,000 bail to be released from jail on Sunday, court records show. He spent about 1 1/2 years in prison starting in 2003 for manufacturing methamphetamine, according to state records. His parole ended in late 2007.
