A $150,000 cash only bond was set Wednesday for a White Hall man on drug and weapons related charges.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Christopher Williams, 32, with simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, fleeing in a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Reading from an affidavit by Police Detective Jeremy Crosby, Deputy Prosecutor Joe West said Monday evening, Crosby was asked by an Arkansas State Trooper to assist in a pursuit of a maroon Dodge Charger that the trooper had attempted to stop for speeding on Blake Street. Police caught up to the Charger at 11th Avenue and Juniper Street.

West said at one point Williams took the magazine out of the gun and threw it to the ground.

Williams said he would hire his own attorney and was told to come back to court March 26.
