Cady L. Cole, 23, also is accused of giving police a false name, said Capt. Paul Forrester of the Salina Police Department.
Forrester said an officer noticed a tag light out on a white 1989 Jeep Cherokee and attempted to stop the vehicle about 12:15 a.m. in the 900 block of North Broadway Boulevard.
The driver didn’t stop and instead hit a top speed of 50 mph as the Jeep wound through north Salina for about a minute before stopping in the 200 block of West Antrim Avenue. The driver and passengers fled on foot, Forrester said.
Cole, the alleged driver, was caught nearby. Forrester said 11 grams of meth, with a street value of about $1,100, was found in the car, along with 6 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Brion C. Jefferson, 34, of Salina, who was arrested on drug charges the following day, was a passenger in the car, Forrester said.
