A high-speed chase by White Hall Police early Friday morning resulted in the arrest of a man who has pending charges dating back to 2012 and disappeared in 2015 after being ordered to undergo a mental exam.
Deputy Prosecutor Jill Reed identified the man as Devontae Iverson and during a court hearing, Friday explained the pending charges to Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth.
Iverson was taken into custody after White Hall Police Sgt. Sandy Castleberry saw a Volkswagen Jetta will Mississippi license plates driving slowly on Carriage Court where several breaking or entering incidents had been reported.
White Hall Police Investigator Clayton Cantrell reported that Castleberry was patrolling the area and got behind the Volkswagen and Reed told the court what happened next.
Reed said Iverson has had more than four prior felony convictions in Craighead County and is listed as an absconder.
Because of the pending case in Jefferson County, Judge Bridgforth set a $10,000 cash-only bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Iverson with felony fleeing.
