Deputies release chase suspect's name, charges
BATON ROUGE- Sheriff's deputies say Eric Jones, 25, didn't stop when they tried to pull him over Thursday for running a stop light, starting a chase that lasted nearly an hour.
Jones took deputies on various speeds; from as slow as ten to twenty up to 80 mph on I-110. He was nabbed after hitting spike strips and eventually stopping.
The chase ended about an hour after it began near I-110 and Choctaw.
Jones was charged with aggravated flight, open container, resisting an officer, suspended drivers license, and traffic and equipment violations.
Exclusive video, filmed by a WBRZ News 2 photographer, showed numerous law enforcement officers taking over streets and attempting to stop Jones for miles.
