Car chase ends in multiple criminal charges

Alabama authorities say they recently arrested three men after a brief car chase. All three were charged with attempting to elude police officers, drug possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia. The man who was allegedly driving the vehicle faces additional charges, including another count of attempting to elude, two counts of reckless endangerment, and multiple traffic citations.

A police deputy first spotted the vehicle on a Sunday night, claiming that it was weaving through lanes of traffic. That deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver refused to stop and continued driving. This sparked a short-lived chase. It ultimately ended in a parking lot, where the three men left the vehicle behind and fled on foot into nearby woods.

The men were apprehended soon after. Police subsequently conducted a search of the vehicle, at which time they allegedly found multiple illicit items including illegal prescription drugs. An individual contacted police shortly after the arrests claiming that the three men had tried to break into his or her store. They were supposedly caught while trying to gain access to the store and left the scene.

Criminal charges are a big deal in Alabama. Defendants often face jail time and fines, and many face personal repercussions, such as losing employment, early in the process. Preparation is often key to minimizing these consequences, but getting started can be hard. For most defendants, conducting a thorough review of all charges alongside an experienced attorney is a smart place to start.
