Press Release – Felony Eluding Arrest

CHAVEZ, ROBERT ANTHONY 3RD

On Sunday, June 4, 2023, at approximately 4:07 p.m., Blaine County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a reckless driver eastbound on U.S. Highway 20.

The vehicle, a 2010 Ford Econoline moving truck, was allegedly passing unsafely, running other vehicles off the road, failing to maintain its lane, and nearly missing oncoming traffic. When deputies located the vehicle, they observed the van traveling at excessive speeds, driving erratically, leaving the roadway, and attempting to elude the officers. 

Robert Anthony Chavez III, age 31 of Nampa, Idaho, was arrested and charged with one count of felony Attempting to Elude a Peace Officer, I.C. 49-104, misdemeanor Driving Under the Influence – Second Offense, I.C, 18-8004(1)(D0, misdemeanor Driving Without Privileges, I.C. 18-8001, and Open Container of Alcohol, I.C.23-505. Chavez’s passenger is being charged by Idaho State Police on related misdemeanor charges that occurred outside BCSO’s jurisdiction. 

Chavez is being held in the Blaine County Detention Center pending arraignment in Magistrate Court Monday afternoon.
