A man who was on the lamb for two years after leading lawmen on a high-speed chase through a subdivision is now back in town and facing a mountain of charges.The suspect, Roy A. Gibbs, 39, was arraigned Tuesday before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on charges of reckless driving, evading arrest, reckless endangerment with an automobile, speeding by going 70 in a 35-mph zone, second-offense driving on a revoked license, running a stop sign, driving without insurance, driving with open alcohol in the car, driving an unregistered vehicle, and violation of probation. He will face hearing this Thursday morning.His charges come after he ran from Highway Patrolman Gary Myers as the trooper was trying to pull him over on Bybee Branch Road in March of 2012. Myers suspected Gibbs had been drinking and turned on his blue lights to stop him.
