The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On March 19, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T. Team) Cpl. Kevin Hoover attempted to conduct a stop on a car near mile marker 10 traveling eastbound on I-10 for a traffic violation.  When Cpl. Hoover activated his unit's lights and sirens signaling for the driver to stop, the driver did not comply and continued to flee from him. 

The driver, later identified as Kanarriso D. Loveless, 39, of Pensacola, Florida, began to drive very aggressively, traveling at speeds in excess of 120 mph and passing other vehicles on the shoulder of the interstate.    

Sulphur Police Department Detective Woods joined in the pursuit and deployed spike strips near mile marker 22, deflating both front tires of the car.  After the car came to a stop, officers were able to restrain Loveless and place him under arrest.

During a search of the car, detectives recovered three large plastic bags containing approximately three pounds of marijuana under the front seats, with an estimated street value of $5,000. 

Loveless was arrested and booked in the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana; aggravated flight from an officer; and no driver's license. 

 Judge Wilford Carter set his bond at $20,000.
