INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/WOOD) – A man may serve life in prison due to reckless driving.

Ronald Jiles, 38, led police on a chase last week on I-94 that started in Indiana.

He allegedly kept swerving, hitting cars and cones along the way while on the highway in Indiana and then continued after crossing the state line into Michigan.

After getting off I-94, police said they were forced to shoot out a tire on the semi. They said that’s when his semi eventually jackknifed on John Beers Road in Stevensville.

Police then approached Jiles with a K-9. He allegedly punched the dog several times, before police tased and arrested him.

Officials said Jiles possibly could have been under the influence of drugs at the time.

He’s now facing charges that include assault with intent to murder.

Jiles now faces eight charges, including assault with intent to murder, which carries a sentence of up to life in prison.
