MAHONING TWP., Pa. - A Lehigh County man led police in Carbon County on a chase Saturday night, and now faces several charges as a result.
The incident started around 8:45 p.m., when Summit Hill police reported a vehicle trespassing at a property on East White Bear Drive, and the vehicle in question -- a black sedan with a loud exhaust -- fled the area at a high rate of speed.
A short time later, a citizen told police the car was seen on Broadway in Jim Thorpe, then a police officer saw a vehicle matching the description heading north on Route 209 up Mansion House hill.
The Jim Thorpe police officer tried to pull over the car, but the driver refused to stop and police said it passed several vehicles on the S-curves where there is limited visibility on the hill.
The car passed both across the double yellow line and on the right side, according to police, and got partially stuck trying to pass a final vehicle on the right.
At that time, police were able to prevent the car from moving, and arrested the driver, identified as Cody Kale of Schnecksville, Lehigh County.
Mahoning Township police said Kale's driver's license was suspended for DUI, and he told police he'd used marijuana.
Kale was charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police, driving under the influence, driving on suspended license and related charges.
He was taken to the Carbon County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail.
