ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska man has agreed to a plea deal that includes a promise to stop chasing after stolen vehicles.
The Anchorage Daily News reported Saturday that 54-year-old Floyd Hall pleaded guilty to one count of reckless endangerment resulting in a 30-day suspended sentence and a $500 fine.
Officials say the terms of Hall’s three-year probation sentence include a pledge to refrain from chasing anyone driving a suspected stolen vehicle.
The newspaper reports that Hall can remain involved with a group calling itself the “A Team” that relies on social media tipoffs to recover stolen automobiles.
Hall engaged in a 19-month court case resulting from an August 2017 charge of reckless driving for what police say was a high-speed chase, but Hall contends only involved following the vehicle.
The prosecuting attorney declined to comment.
