West Virginia man charged after ATV chase
KINGWOOD, W.Va. (AP) – A West Virginia man was jailed on gun and drug charges after a wild ATV chase ended when he crashed into a creek, WBOY-TV reported.
Authorities said Billy Joe Nelder, 35, took off on his ATV Thursday as soon as Preston County sheriff’s deputies pulled up behind him and zipped around corners until flipping the vehicle into a creek in Kingwood, a National Guard facility.
The deputies found three bags of methamphetamine on Nelder, as well as an illegal firearm. He also had a set of scales, multiple SIM cards, three throwing knives and a container with six bullets, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the station.
Nelder is being held on a $100,000 bond. A court clerk said Nelder has not yet been assigned an attorney.
