A Mobile man is currently being processed into jail after leading Mobile County Sheriff’s deputies on a high speed chase down I-65 South that ended in a single vehicle accident.
According to authorities, Joseph Allen Oubre acted as if he was going to pull over when officers attempted to stop his vehicle for a routine traffic violation. However, when officers exited their vehicles, Oubre “took off” and attempted to elude police.
Upon their arrival, deputies confirmed the driver of the vehicle in the accident was Oubre, whom they had been pursuing.
Myles said Oubre was not badly injured during the accident and has since been transported to the Mobile County Metro Jail. Officers recovered 82 grams of ice or methamphetamine with an approximate street value of $10,000 from his vehicle. They also recovered a pistol, an AK-47 assault rifle and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Oubre is no stranger to the law, and officers even found previous Mobile Metro Jail cards in his vehicle during their search. Jail records show Oubre has a criminal history that includes theft of property, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and even previous attempts of attempting to elude law enforcement officers.
