When the deputy activated the squad's emergency lights to pull him over, Jacobson allegedly sped up and fled at 80-90 mph for about a mile, then thought better of it and pulled over. He allegedly said he fled because it would be his fifth DWI. His blood alcohol level tested at .12 percent at the jail an hour later.

On April 25, he posted a $50,000 bail bond. A contested omnibus hearing is set for July 16.
