32-33-18.2. Aggravated eluding law enforcement officer as felony--Enhanced penalties. Any driver of a vehicle who flees from a law enforcement officer or attempts to elude the pursuit of a law enforcement officer is guilty of aggravated eluding if, at any time during the flight or pursuit, the driver operates the vehicle in a manner that constitutes an inherent risk of death or serious bodily injury to any third person.
Aggravated eluding is a Class 6 felony. In addition, the court may order that the defendant's driver's license be revoked for up to one year, but may issue an order, upon proof of financial responsibility pursuant to § 32-35-43.1, allowing the defendant to operate a vehicle for purposes of the defendant's employment, attendance at school, or counseling programs. For any subsequent aggravated eluding violation, the court shall order that the defendant's driver's license be revoked for five years.
