Man in Ottawa police chase identified

Posted by wlpo on August 8, 2015

   The man at the center of a dramatic police chase in Ottawa last night has been identified. The County jail said his name is Jeffrey Hankerson of Ottawa. The 20-year old is in the lockup for retail theft, attempting to elude police, reckless driving and no valid DL.

   Officers were chasing Hankerson for a retail theft charge. The report says Hankerson reached speeds of almost 80 mph on East Norris Drive before entering downtown. The chase ended when the car flipped onto its top at Columbus and Madison.

    In 2012, Hankerson was charged with felony robbery when he and a 16 year old Peru boy attacked and robbed a Peru man.
