Jeremy Douglas McGhee, 30, was arrested this morning at 3:35, after he was determined to be the driver of a vehicle stopped by a Grants Pass Police officer in the area of Cloverlawn Drive and Ponderosa Drive.
McGhee has been the subject of interest since he was involved in a car crash November 5th at the intersection of New Hope Road and Williams Highway that left Juan Granados-Gonzales in the Rogue Regional Medical Centerís intensive care unit in critical condition.
McGhee had been involved in a high speed pursuit in a stolen GMC Yukon just prior to the crash and fled on foot.
Authorities have been following several leads regarding his location for the last few weeks. Suspects who assisted McGhee in his effort to avoid apprehension, including two other occupants in the vehicle stopped this morning have also been arrested.
McGhee is being held on charges including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, being a felon in possession of a firearm, three counts of possession of methamphetamine, 2nd degree assault, attempt to elude, 1st and 2nd degree criminal mischief, and a failure to appear on an original possession charge.
Additional charges are anticipated.
