A Nowata man was in court yesterday for eluding police, possessing a controlled dangerous substance and driving with a suspended or canceled license.
Court documents say Jonathan Andrew Hughes was going 50 mph in a 35-mph zone before police pulled him over May 20th. When an officer approached the vehicle, Hughes sped away.
Speeds would reach 80 mph as the chase entered Nowata County on county roads and onto Highway 10. The pursuit would end when the suspect’s vehicle spun and flipped upside-down.
During a vehicle search, officers found Hughes’ ID, a clear glass pipe and a baggie with a crystal-like substance, which tested postive for methamphetamine.
Hughes is being held on $20,000 bond. His next court date was set for August 11th.
