A man who led lawmen on a chase through three counties has been bound to the grand jury on felony charges.The suspect, Joseph Adam Ashmore, 30, waived his right to preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and was bound to the grand jury on charges of evading arrest, driving on a suspended license second offense, and aggravated assault. He was also bound on separate charges for taking part in a gas theft at Morrison Church of Christ, a theft he was linked to by video surveillance tape.His evading arrest charge comes after deputies were alerted that officers from Rutherford and Cannon counties were chasing a man in a Ford Bronco. Deputy Jason Walker saw the suspect’s vehicle on Nashville Highway.“He immediately turned on Bates Hill Road and I chased him for four or five miles,” Walker said in his warrant against Ashmore.
