A man who reportedly sped through downtown Viola at 90 mph before flipping his car Thursday morning has been arrested and faces eight charges, including possession of meth. Joshua Andrew Biles, 37, was transported first to Saint Thomas River Park Hospital and then to jail where he was booked Thursday afternoon on $105,000 bond. The high-speed chase began Thursday morning at 7:20 a.m. when state trooper Wade Myers clocked Biles speeding on Viola Road nears its intersection with Bob Ramsey Road.
