SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 27-year-old Sergeant Bluff man has been given 15 years for forgery and his actions during a police chase.

The Sioux City Journal says Brandon Miller had been passing counterfeit money. He was sentenced in Woodbury County District Court on Monday. He'd pleaded guilty on June 13 to forgery, eluding and assault on a peace officer.

Miller drove a pickup truck and originally fled authorities in North Sioux City, S.D., in March. The chase went down Interstate 29 and off into a neighborhood, where Miller crashed into two police vehicles, injuring a deputy. The chase ended when Miller crashed into a truck.

Police said Miller and two other people had used counterfeit bills at one store and that a clerk at another store refused to take the counterfeit money.
