Hours after appearing in court to have an ankle monitor removed, a Las Vegas man was arrested for felony aggravated fleeing of law enforcement following a high-speed chase.

According to Las Vegas Police, around 8 a.m. Dec. 12, an officer’s radar recorded 24-year-old Jeffrey C. Fernandez driving 98 mph on I-25 near exit 345 in Las Vegas. When the officer initiated a traffic stop, Fernandez pulled into a gas station on the corner of North Grand and University Ave. Fernandez then “sped off,” traveling north on Grand, according to a police report.
