DPS Chase Lands Two in Jail


Two men were arrested Sunday night following a high-speed chase in Madison County.

Joshua McLaurin and Codie Drummonds were taken into custody after authorities say McLaurin led them on a chase reaching speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

McLaurin wrecked his vehicle at the intersection of I-45 and State Highway 75, according to authorities.

Officials said McLaurin then fled on foot before being caught by highway patrol.

McLaurin was charged with evading arrest, driving while intoxicated, among other charges.

Drummonds was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
