Abany said there appeared to be a 10-year gap in which no charges were brought against Chase. DePaulo responded, saying, “I just found out he spent 10 years in federal prison in Maine.”
Abany ordered Chase held on $100,000 cash bail. He said Chase’s attempt to elude police during the car chase was “not a good sign.” A probable cause hearing is Nov. 14. Abany issued Chase a 60-day warning, meaning if he posts bail he must stay out of trouble or risk being held without bail for up to 60 days.
