Posted March 24, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — A Fuquay-Varina man faces numerous charges after leading authorities on a three-county, 25-mile chase with speeds up to 90 mph.
Brian Keith Jones Jr., 31, was jailed Sunday morning on several charges, including driving while impaired, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license and trafficking cocaine.
Capt. James Stevens, a spokesman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office, said a deputy tried pulling Jones for speeding around 7:30 a.m. on Interstate 40 near Garner but that he sped off.
That prompted the pursuit through Johnston and Harnett counties. It ended near Coats after authorities deployed stop strips.
