Man faces drug charges after high speed chase

A California man was charged with felony evading and drug possession following a high-speed car chase. The criminal charges were brought against the man after police found drugs in the man's rental car.

According to police reports, a black Chevy Camaro was spotted going more than 100 miles per hour on highway 94. Police attempted to stop the driver, but the driver refused to pull over. Instead, the driver took off, heading north on 1-5 into Bankers Hill. He then proceeded to take police through residential streets in Hillcrest. Helicopters were brought in to help track the Camaro. The driver gave up the chase in the vicinity of the 2700 block of Pacific Highway. Police searched the car and found some drugs.

The man in this story is facing serious charges of drug possession and felony evading. A person convicted of a felony will face lifelong consequences. A felony conviction remains on a person's criminal record and employers often refuse to hire people who have been convicted of felony crimes. Those accused of serious felony charges might benefit from the representation of a criminal defense attorney. An attorney may be able to examine the case closely and might find grounds to reduce the charges or get a case dismissed.

For a person facing criminal charges, the trial process can be overwhelming and intimidating. An attorney may be able to help an individual to understand the legal process and may be able to provide representation in court. Everyone, no matter what they have been charged with, deserves the right to a fair trial. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help protect the rights of the accused.
