A man who led deputies on a high-speed chase which started in a church parking lot has been bound to the grand jury.The alleged driver, Joshua Russell, was bound to the grand jury by General Sessions Judge Larry Ross on charges of evading arrest, reckless driving, and fourth-offense driving on a revoked license.Deputies say they pulled up on a Nissan Maxima and a PT Cruiser in the parking lot of Charles Creek Church and activated their blue lights. At that point, deputy Brad Myers reported seeing a man get behind the wheel of the Maxima and take off at a high rate of speed. The Maxima then led lawmen on a chase around the Short Mountain Road area until it was able to give lawmen the slip.
