A Newville man faces charges after police said he was caught fleeing from police for the second time in one week in Cumberland County.

Forrest Hoover, 26, was charged Monday with flight to avoid apprehension, fleeing police, accidents involving damage to property and summary traffic offenses after a morning police chase in South Middleton Township that in some parts involved speeds in excess of 90 mph.

State Police at Carlisle said they were attempting to serve a felony arrest warrant on Hoover on Monday at 7:45 a.m. in relation to another fleeing incident from Nov. 30. Hoover was located in South Middleton, and police tried to initiate a traffic stop, but Hoover failed to pull over.

Police said Hoover fled north on Forge Road at speeds of more than 90 mph in his Toyota Camry, and troopers pursued Hoover north on Forge Road to York Road near Interstate 81.

Police said they performed multiple precision immobilization technique maneuvers, and Hoover was eventually taken into custody.

Hoover was arraigned Monday by Magisterial District Judge Susan Day, who set bail at $50,000 cash, which he was unable to post. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 18.

Hoover also faces fleeing charges out of Shippensburg in relation to a Nov. 30 incident. Charges of fleeing police, possession of drug paraphernalia and summary traffic offenses were filed late last week. He was arraigned on the Shippensburg charges also on Monday, and Magisterial District Judge H. Anthony Adams set bail at $100,000 cash, which Hoover was unable to post. A preliminary hearing on those charges is scheduled for Dec. 9.
