New Charges In High Speed Chase

The Greene County Prosecutor has filed new charges against the man who led authorities on a high speed chase through Springfield Tuesday evening.

Johnnie Coffer faces charges of vehicle hijacking, resisting arrest, and drug possession.

Greene County deputies attempted to arrest Coffer, when he and another man sped off in a truck.

They assaulted the driver, who was still in the truck, and threw him out.

Coffer sped through several intersections before he crashed into a patrol car at Dale and Grant.

Deputies say he violated his probation in November by cutting off his GPS ankle monitor.
