KC MAN FACING TAMPERING FELONY DUE IN SALINE COUNTY COURT ON TUESDAY

A Kansas City man who allegedly led law enforcement on a high-speed chase, fled the scene after crashing his vehicle and was charged with multiple felonies last summer is due in court this week.

A probable-cause statement says, the pursuit occurred on July 26 on I-70, and 27-year-old Felipe Reyna, later was apprehended at Betty’s Truck Stop. In Reyna’s pocket, the trooper allegedly located an “ice pick,” which is believed to have been used to “hotwire” the vehicle, which later was confirmed to be stolen out of Kansas City.

Online court documents say Reyna has been charged with a Class D Felony for Tampering with a Motor Vehicle in the First Degree and a Class E Felony for Resisting Arrest, Detention or Stop by Fleeing, Creating a Substantial Risk of Serious Injury or Death to Any Person.

Reyna reportedly waived his preliminary hearing and was bound over to Division 4. His arraignment hearing is scheduled to be held 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 13, at Saline County Circuit Court in Marshall.
