A 30-year-old Gillette man faces multiple charges after failing to stop for Campbell County Sheriff’s deputies Saturday night.

According to Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds, a deputy was in the area of Stroup’s Trailer Court just before 11 p.m. investigating a report of a 911 hang-up call when he saw a tan GMC Yukon with improper registration. When the deputy ran the license plate, the description on the registration did not match that of the Yukon.

The driver of the Yukon did not stop when deputies attempted to make a traffic stop near Swanson Road. Instead, Reynolds said, the vehicle continued to evade deputies on a meandering route on the southern part of town, reaching speeds of 90 mph on Southern Drive.

The Yukon continued north on Enzi Drive, through Gillette College parking lot and a field, before the driver parked at a residence on Dogwood Avenue and ran inside. A short time later, a deputy saw the driver leave the house through the basement and attempted to hide under a camper adjacent to the residence.

The driver, later identified as Dillon Fuller, did not comply with the deputies’ commands at first but was arrested around 11:05 p.m.

Fuller was charged with driving under the influence, driving with a cancelled, suspended, or revoked license, eluding, interference with an officer, and expired registration.
