Man indicted after leading police on a chase through Lubbock Cemetery

LUBBOCK, TEXAS (KCBD) - A Lubbock man now stands indicted on four charges, after he led police on a chase through the Lubbock cemetery in January. Tuesday afternoon a Grand Jury indicted 20-year-old Joseph Cephus, Jr. on two counts of aggravated assault. He's also indicted for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.  

On January 15th, police responded to a shots fired call in East Lubbock. They attempted to pull over the suspect vehicle near 42nd and MLK. Authorities say Cephus was the driver, and that he tried to ram a police cruiser as he sped away. The pursuit ended in the Lubbock cemetery, where Cephus and two passengers were arrested following a brief foot chase.
