A driver was arrested last week after taking police on an hours-long car chase because he claimed he possessed marijuana in his vehicle.
Talking to reporters after being taken into custody, the man who identified himself to be Jonathan Davis, 26, said, "Yeah, I had weed on me. I always got weed on me."
Davis led police on a chase that spanned 100 miles, says FOX4 based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
A McLennan Country Sheriffs' Department spokesperson said, "Two tires were spiked so he was running on two flats and after he spun out, hit the guardrail, he was surrounded immediately. He got out of the vehicle and was taken down, placed in handcuffs and taken into custody."
When asked why he ran, Davis told reporters, "I'm tired of getting arrested for weed. I can't get a regular job anywhere, ever, because all of my weed charges."
Davis was arrested on charges of "evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance, marijuana possession and driving while intoxicated."
