A man wanted for a traffic-related homicide is behind bars in the Mission Valley.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell says that 27-year old, Dominick Buccelli, the subject of an arrest warrant in Yellowstone County, was arrested on Friday morning.

Buccelli was seen by a Lake County Sheriff’s deputy in a 2018 Dodge Ram in Polson and it was determined to be stolen out of Bighorn County.

When the deputy attempted to stop him, Buccelli attempted to flee, according to Sheriff Bell.

Buccelli was pursued by the deputy and a Polson Police officer at speeds up to 90 mph in the Back Road and North Reservoir Road areas.

Sheriff Bell says the pursuit ended near the intersection of US Highway 93 North and North Reservoir Road.

Buccelli was taken into custody.
