Suspect from dangerous New Year’s Eve car chase in Latah County sent to prison

The 35 year old Lewiston man who allegedly led local law enforcement in Latah County on a dangerous high speed car chase New Year’s Eve is going to prison.  Michael Greene pleaded guilty Thursday to felony eluding and was sentenced to between 2 and 3 years in prison.  Greene led a Latah County Sheriff’s Deputy on a car chase between Potlatch and Troy at speeds of up to 100 MPH.  It took 2 sets of spike strips to stop him.  Greene has an extensive criminal history including killing a man in the valley in December of 2015.  He was not charged in that case as the shooting was ruled a justifiable act of self-defense.
