Mark Forsythe, 57, is charged with drug possession, eluding police, destruction of evidence and driving without privileges.

Boise Police said a suspect initially refused to stop when they pursued his vehicle after failing to signal a turn near North Allumbaugh and West Preece the evening of Dec. 8. Law enforcement said the vehicle accelerated across a parking lot before coming to a quick stop, with the driver running away after smashing a glass pipe to the ground.

Police said they discovered meth residue in the pipe. A K-9, named Turk, also detected the presence of drugs inside the vehicle. Police seized syringes, marijuana and scales from inside the car.

When officers approached the vehicle, the suspect drove off at a high rate of speed, blowing through a stop sign and driving in excess of 80 mph in a 30 mph zone.

Ultimately, the driver lost control of his vehicle and slammed into the bank of a canal.
