A $10k cash only bond set for a White Hall man accused of felony fleeing


By Ray King

A $10,000 cash only bond was set Thursday for a White Hall man accused of fleeing from Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies Tuesday night and running multiple stop signs and speeding during the chase.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Allen Jeffrey, 37, with felony fleeing.

Reading from an affidavit by Sheriff’s Investigator Rodney Allen, Deputy Prosecutor Brittaney Akel said at 9:44 p.m., a sheriff’s deputy was traveling south on Dollarway Road when he saw a two-door vehicle driven by a male later identified as Jeffrey who was not wearing a seat belt.

Akel said the deputy continued to follow the car until it pulled into a driveway.

Court records show that Jeffrey has two pending cases as well as arrest warrants from Faulkner County.

He said he would hire his own attorney and was told to come back to court June 7.
