Man faces drug charges following Missouri high-speed chase

Many individuals, when facing a confrontation with police, react out of fear and panic. For some, this could prompt someone to flee an officer rather than stop. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a man in Missouri now faces federal drug charges following a car chase.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened on a day in October. According to reports, a sheriff's deputy attempted to stop a vehicle, reportedly driven by a 33-year-old man, for a traffic infraction; the details regarding the infraction are unclear. The deputy claims that the driver fled. Reports note that a high-pursuit chase reaching 120 mph followed; the chase is said to have come to an end when the man drove through a yard and struck a tree.

A female passenger was taken into custody by the deputy; it is unclear if she was also charged with a crime. Officers claim that the driver fled the scene. He was ultimately taken into custody. Police say that a search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of two handguns, approximately 80 grams of methamphetamine, digital scales and baggies. A grand jury recently indicted the man on charges of possessing firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime and possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. 

Unfortunately, many people facing drug charges and other criminal accusations in Missouri are unsure how to respond to the allegations. The implications of a conviction of the charges can be serious. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can help those facing charges fully understand their options and decide on the most appropriate response.
