SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A 22-year-old man who stands accused of leading law enforcement officers on a 100 mph chase has been indicted. 

Francisco Martinez-Gonzalez, of Tyler was indicted on July 26 by a Smith County grand jury in the 241st Judicial District Court. 

Martinez-Gonzales faces charges of evading arrest, two counts of driving while intoxicated and possession of a controlled substance. 

On June 9, a law enforcement officer tried to pull Martinez-Gonzalez over for a traffic stop when they observed him driving recklessly Saturday on FM 850, Game Warden Capt. Quint Balkcom said.

Martinez-Gonzalez did not stop and instead fled, almost colliding head-on with an officer, Balkcom said.

He then allegedly led officers on a pursuit with speeds reaching up to 100 mph and drove into oncoming traffic, Balkcom said.

Martinez-Gonzalez eventually crashed into a fence on FM 850.
