A Virginia man faces a slew of felony charges after allegedly leading deputies on a frenetic chase in a stolen car that reached speeds up to 132 mph, officials said.
The driver was pulled over by a Culpeper County deputy after being clocked doing 78 mph in a 55 mph zone, the sheriff's department said in a statement.
“The driver of the vehicle could not provide any form of identification and gave several different names and conflicting information,” the office said.
The dispatcher ran the car's plates and discovered they were stolen, authorities said. As the deputy ordered the driver out of the car, he sped off, according to the sheriff's office statement.

After crossing into Orange County, the driver pulled a hard right and lost control, crashing into a tree, officials said. He ran, eventually hiding in an abandoned school bus, where a K-9 pulled him out, the statement said.
Eventually, deputies learned the suspect's name was Yusuf Stallings, the statement said.
"We're very thankful no one was seriously injured as a result of Stallings' dangerous actions," the department said.
Stallings was charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer, eluding police, speeding, possession of a stolen vehicle, giving false identification to a law enforcement officer, and driving with a revoked license.
He is being held without bail at the Culpeper County Jail. He has not entered a plea.
