Law enforcement agencies are searching for a fugitive wanted after admitting to home invasion and other charges.

The Clark County District Attorney's Office said 41-year-old Shawn Currie failed to show up for sentencing on charges that also include possession of a stolen vehicle and attempted stop required on signal of a police officer.

"He was in a high speed chase," DA Steve Wolfson said. "Earlier, he kicked down a door and beaten up his wife pretty good. So he's a dangerous guy that we want off the streets."

The high-speed chase happened in December 2015 through the area of Maryland Parkway before he was arrested near Lucky's Bar.
