Arizona Department of Public Safety troopers used a GPS tracking system to follow a Phoenix man in a pursuit on Pinal freeways.

According to Pinal County Superior Court records, Jessie L. Edwards, 31, is charged with unlawful flight and prohibited possession of a weapon.

At around 10 a.m. on Oct. 5, a DPS trooper attempted to stop Edwards’ green Escalade near milepost 233 on westbound Interstate 10 for his windows being tinted too darkly. Edwards allegedly refused to stop for the officer’s marked patrol unit and accelerated to about 100 mph in a 75 mph zone.
