If you’ve been following the story of a high speed chase through the streets of Ottawa, the man accused of running from the law is still behind bars.

Jeffrey Hankerson of Ottawa was indicted Tuesday on charges of retail theft and aggravated fleeing and eluding police. He needs $5,000 bond to get out of jail.

Hankerson is accused of leading officers from the city of Ottawa and La Salle County Sheriff’s Office on a chase all over Ottawa on August 7th. The dramatic pursuit ended with guns drawn and Hankerson flipping his car on the eastside of downtown.
