A 65-year-old Pleasant Prairie man has been charged with fleeing police and recklessly endangering safety, both felonies, after refusing to exit his vehicle and leaving the scene after being pulled over.

Police said Robert Seal was stopped while driving to a Kenosha Walgreens about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. Officers observed the man crossing the center line several times before making the stop, according to authorities.

Seal told police he just had surgery and was going to the pharmacy to pick up pain medication. But when an officer returned to his squad to check his license, Seal insisted on going through the drive-thru to get medication.

He was told that he would need to wait until police finished their investigation.

The responding officers thought Seal was becoming argumentative, so they asked him to exit the vehicle. Instead, Seal drove off, leading police on a short chase.

Officers attempted to block in the vehicle around 39th Avenue and 85th Street, however, Seal put his car into reverse, hitting a squad car and speeding away.

The chase eventually came to a stop at Seal's home on Cooper Road, where he again refused to exit the vehicle. He was subsequently arrested after being tased.

His next appearance in court is scheduled for Sept. 18.
