Two Billings residents are now in custody after leading a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper on an early morning high speed chase northwest of Cheyenne Monday.

25-year-old Justin Fuller and 18-year-old Taylor Graves were both arrested after a vehicle chase and brief foot pursuit ended in a pasture near Laramie County Road 216 and Wyoming State Highway 211.

According to the Highway Patrol, troopers were dispatched to a report just after midnight Monday of a Chevrolet Corvette driving erratically on Interstate 25 southbound. A trooper located the vehicle on I-25 just north of Cheyenne. As the trooper attempted to catch up to the Corvette, the vehicle, driven by Fuller, began to travel northbound in the southbound lanes of I-25.

The pursuit continued after the Corvette exited I-25 and traversed through multiple county roads, pastures and one residential yard. Both Fuller and Graves took off on foot after coming to a stop in a pasture. Troopers and deputies with the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office arrested the two individuals shortly after they attempted to flee on foot.

The 2013 Corvette was reported stolen out of Billings on September 20. Speeds during the chase reached 145 mph. Fuller and Graves were both booked into the Laramie County Detention Center in Cheyenne. Fuller has been charged with Possession of Stolen Property, Impaired Driving, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Marijuana, Interference, Fleeing and Eluding and Reckless Driving. Graves has been charged with Possession of Stolen Property and Interference.
