Man who fled from police sentenced to year in jail.

HART — A 37-year-old Muskegon man was sentenced to one year in jail in 27th Circuit Court, Feb. 7, for convictions of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police, fleeing and eluding police and fourth-offense habitual offender.

A jury convicted Levi Christopher Frasier, of 4731 Sunnyridge Rd., Dec. 6, 2021.

Frasier escaped from police following a high-speed chase that crossed county lines in September of 2020. He fled from an Oceana County sheriff’s deputy in the area of 184th Avenue and Garfield Road in Greenwood Township following a traffic stop.

After stop sticks were used to deflate the tires on his 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, Frasier fled on foot in the area of Fruitvale and Brickyard roads in Muskegon County.

The jury found Frasier not guilty of charges of methamphetamine possession and MDMA possession.

The Oceana County Sheriff’s Office recovered his vehicle, which contained over 17 pounds of marijuana, suspected methamphetamine, suspected MDMA, multiple marijuana edibles and multiple oil forms of marijuana, said Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast previously.

During the chase, Frasier was traveling 100 mph on M 20 in Oceana County, Mast said. After he turned south onto 132nd Avenue near Ferry, he began throwing items out of his car. He also attempted to “blind” the chasing deputy by shining a bright light from his car, the sheriff said.

When fleeing from the traffic stop, he hit the front bumper guard of the deputy’s patrol car, said the sheriff.

Several other agencies assisted including the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office, the Newaygo County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police and the Fremont Police Department.

Frasier was facing a maximum term of 15 years in prison, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon. His fourth-offense habitual offender status elevated his maximum, which is normally two years.

His fleeing and eluding conviction is reportable to the Michigan Secretary of State for driver’s license sanctions.

Judge Bradley G. Lambrix gave him credit for 65 days served in jail and ordered $490 in fines and costs.
