Man pleads guilty to taunting police

Tue Oct 2, 9:56 PM ET

A Colorado Springs man pleaded guilty to felony eluding in connection with a case in which he taunted authorities. Alexander Craig, 22, entered the plea on Monday in district court, saying that he was having a mental breakdown at the time.


Police received about 10 cell phone calls during a three-hour period in March, when Craig made statements like "I'm hammered ... come get me."


Some 20 officers tried for two hours to locate and capture Craig. They eventually found him near a grocery store and used a Taser during his arrest.


A 911 recording revealed Craig said he was too drunk to remember his own name, and taunted police because they couldn't find him.
Craig is free on $1,000 bond.
Sentencing is set for December 10th.
