MOBRIDGE, S.D. -- A 27-year-old Mobridge man who took his 17-month-old daughter and a woman with him in a high-speed pursuit with officers that ended in a serious crash has been taken into custody for child abuse.

Gabe Dubois was sentenced to six months in custody and three years of supervised release by U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann earlier this week.

In June, Dubois was caught on video camera stealing beer from a convenience store and police later found him driving around in his black Oldsmobile Alero with North Dakota license plates. He fled Mobridge police through several streets in the town and drove around a road block of two police cars. The chase continued at speeds of up to 100 mph on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation outside of Mobridge and BIA officers joined in the chase. South of Kenel, he rolled the vehicle several times. Officers were able to extract the three from the vehicle, which contained several empty cans and bottles of alcoholic beverages.
