Wilmington chase suspect's SC fugitive case continued


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A man accused of leading a police chase last fall that ended with a police dog's bite will stay in the New Hanover County Jail for now.

Johnnie Lamont Williams was in court today for a fugitive warrant from South Carolina. His case was continued.

Williams is charged with attempted murder in Beaufort County, SC, after allegedly trying to hit three officers with his car two years ago.

Williams is due back in court next month for his charges from last fall's chase after investigators say he drove through a Halloween night DWI checkpoint in Wilmington.
