WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) - A Washington man has pleaded guilty to felony charges stemming from a police chase he led in March.

The Union-Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/2tpBKM2 ) 30-year-old Andrae T. Jackson pleaded guilty on Monday to attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle and second-degree malicious mischief.

Officials say an officer in March tried to pull over the vehicle Jackson was driving when he turned away and accelerated. The vehicle Jackson was driving then struck a tree and a foot pursuit began. Jackson was arrested a few days later after a warrant was issued.

Charges of unlawful imprisonment, hit and run with property damage and third-degree driving with a suspended or revoked license will be dismissed as part of the plea deal.

Jackson faces a jail term of two to six months.
