Suspect in multi-county chase appears in Miami-Dade court

One of the men arrested following a cross-county chase that ended in Lauderhill Thursday appeared in Miami-Dade bond court Friday.

MIAMI – A suspect in a multi-county police chase that ended in Lauderhill Thursday faced a Miami-Dade County judge Friday.

Nineteen-year-old Channing Howard appeared in bond court on a long list of felony criminal charges, including fleeing police, aggravated assault and grand theft of a vehicle.

Howard, along with two other suspects, who remain at large, are accused of fleeing from police in southwest Miami-Dade in a car that was reported stolen out of Palm Beach County.

Authorities allege that Howard hit a patrol car during the chase. Defense attorneys asked that he be held on house arrest, but Judge Mindy Glazer declined, saying he could have killed someone.

Glazer set bond at approximately $21,000.

Howard is also set to face charges in Broward and Palm Beach counties.
