Man Who Led Police on High Speed Chase Indicted

A Lubbock County Grand Jury indicted the man who led police on a chase through the heart of Lubbock last month.

During that high speed chase on February 17th, Lubbock Police say James Rodgers was intentionally trying to get rid of evidence from a methamphetamine lab in the bed of his truck. At one point, Rodgers drove threw a cotton field, hoping the uneven terrain would help bounce the evidence out of the truck, according to police.

Rodgers was also caught on tape driving the wrong way on Loop 289. After nearly 30 minutes, Rodgers crashed into a pole and ran.

But he was caught less than a block away from the crash at 58th Street and Avenue V.

On Tuesday, Rodgers was indicted on drug charges, for which he faces anywhere from 5 years to life in prison if he is found guilty. On the charge of evading arrest, he faces the possibility of two years in prison.
