Montana - Robbie Knievel was arrested on suspicion of the felony driving under the influence in the Montana town that his daredevil father Evel Knievel helped make famous.

Police tell The Montana Standar that Knievel was speeding in a sport utility vehicle on Tuesday evening when he rear-ended a Honda, causing a chain-reaction crash involving two other vehicles. No one was injured.

Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff, George Skuletich says Knievel drove off but was found about a block away. He refused a breath test and so officers got a search warrant to take a blood sample.

Knievel, who is 52, was booked into jail, where he remained until Wednesday morning pending an initial appearance in Justice Court.

Skuletich says Knievel invoked his rights to an attorney but didn't give officers a name.
