90-miles-per-hour chase suspect identified

The felony suspect who led deputies on a 90-miles-per-hour chase through Colorado Springs just after midnight has been identified as Lee Lacey.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office reports that it had Lacey under surveillance at his home. Just after midnight, he and two other people got into a car and drove off. Deputies tried to stop the car at Galley and Circle Dr. That's when Lacey took off, according to EPCSO.

Lee Lacey was checked at a hospital, then booked into jail on the following charges:

  • Felony Vehicular Eluding

  • Driving Under the Infuluence of Drugs
  • Driving Under Restraint
  • Reckless Driving
  • Duty to Report (Upon Striking an Unattended Vehicle)

The whereabouts of the third person was not been disclosed by the sheriff's office.
