A suspect who took Pittsburgh Police on a high-speed chase through Homewood late Friday remains in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing.

Authorities said Robert Turner, 49, of Penn Hills, was driving a blue Pontiac Grand Am on North Braddock Ave shortly before midnight. Police determined that his expired plate belonged to a Chrysler vehicle.

Police said they pursued him at speeds of up to 50 mph before he stopped and tried to flee on foot.

After his arrest, officers found his license was suspended and there was a warrant for him for failing to pay damages from a November accident.

He's charged with fleeing officers, flight to avoid apprehension, driving on a suspended license, failure to have motorist insurance, reckless driving, fraudulent plates and the lack of headlights.

Turner's hearing is slated for Thursday in Common Pleas Court.
