24 year old Jeremy Haynes faces felony charges after posting a Facebook status after fleeing from Cape Girardeau police on Christmas Eve. Officer Darin Hickey says that it all started with an attempt at fraud at Schnuck's. Haynes fled and due to high speeds officers were forced to end the chase. Haynes then posted on Facebook about the chase. Haynes’ Facebook status was used as evidence in court Thursday where Prosecuting attourney Chris Limbaugh charged Haynes with a felony of resisting arrest. He is now in custody with a $15,000 cash only bond.
