High Speed Chase Ends In Arrest

A Gulfport man is behind bars charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and child neglect.

Narcotics agents were trying to make an undercover drug deal at 28th and Pass Road in Gulfport. They say 24 year old, Ricardo Bryan Newsome didn't want to cooperate. Investigators shot at the suspect, but say he drove-off and led police on a chase that ended on Henderson Street where he tried to get away on foot. He was arrested moments later then taken to Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

Newsome is being held on a 150 thousand dollar bond at the Harrison County Jail.
