Florida drug suspect whose mugshot went viral, arrested in Lee County

LEE COUNTY, AL (WRBL) - Lee County Sheriff's have arrested a Pensacola man after he took Montgomery Police on a chase. 

According to Lee County Sheriff’s investigators, 31-year-old Charles McDowell was running from Montgomery Police Wednesday morning on Interstate 85 when he drove into Lee County.

Deputies say they used spike strips to disable his vehicle and make the arrest.

Deputies say he faces five charges: attempting to elude, second-degree possession of marijuana, reckless driving, driving while license revoked, and improper lane usage.

McDowell’s mug shot in Florida went viral after he was booked into the Escambia County jail earlier this year for possession of methamphetamine and cocaine with an intent to sell, possession of marijuana and other drug charges.
