COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A Tabor City teen has bonded his way out of jail, for the second time in less than a week.
The Tabor City Police Department arrested 17-year-old Allen Strickland Sunday after they say he took officers on a high-speed chase.
Captain Folley with the Tabor City Police department said Strickland did a U-turn in the middle of the road, and then fish tailed his Corvette several times during the chase, which reached speeds of 75 mph.
The teen posted a $500,000 bond Monday morning at 8:00. He is now on house arrest until his next court date.
Strickland is facing charges of:
- felony to elude arrest
- no operators license
- careless and reckless driving
- falsely reporting theft of a motor vehicle
The Tabor City teen faced a judge last week on two felony charges, including charges of burning down his own home which was paid for by State Senator R.C. Soles.
