News: Man pleads guilty in connection with chase, crash in Norfolk

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – A Texas man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a high-speed chase and crash in Norfolk in August, WAVY reports.

19-year-old Michael Stone was sentenced to three years with half the time suspended after entering his plea in Virginia Beach Circuit Court to felony charges of eluding police and reckless driving.

Virginia State Police say the incident began when a trooper tried to stop Stone as he was driving a Mitsubishi Eclipse at speeds over 100 miles an hour.  Troopers said he refused to stop and instead took off, but lost control and crashed on Interstate 264 West near City Hall Avenue.

The car caught fire but Stone escaped with minor injuries while a passenger in the vehicle was not hurt.
