Illinois Man Leads Erie Police On High Speed Chase

Posted: Updated:

An Illinois man is in the Erie county prison, after leading police on a dangerous high-speed chase throughout the city.

Around 3:00 Monday morning, Erie police say an officer saw 28 year old Charles Jones run a red light at west 38th and Peach.
Police say he reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour, as he eluded officers over 38th street, down parade, and along east 28th.
Police say he ran several red lights and stop signs along the way.

Police say Jones bailed from his car near East 25th and Perry, ran through several back yards, and officers eventually found him hiding near 25th and Wayne.
Jones is facing several traffic violations, and charges including resisting arrest and recklessly endangering another person.
A judge placed him behind bars on $50,000 dollars bond.
