Authorities on Monday charged a Kansas City, Kan., man with multiple felonies following a high-speed pursuit early Sunday.
Charles D. Grayson, 26, was charged with first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer. He was apprehended after he drove at speeds higher than 100 mph from Kansas City into KCK.
According to court records, Kansas City police officers observed a gray Chevrolet Tahoe drive through a stop sign at a high rate of speed at about 4:30 a.m. Officers attempted a traffic stop near Linwood Boulevard and Brooklyn Avenue, but the Tahoe didn’t stop. At one point, the driver drove directly at an officer before driving up on the curve and avoiding him.
A pursuit followed that lasted about 20 minutes, with Grayson driving through several red lights and stop signs, police said. The chase ended when the car stopped in Kansas City, Kan. and Grayson fled on foot, police said. Officers soon captured him.
Authorities found two stolen handguns in the car. Grayson also was charged with two counts of unlawful firearm possession.
