A 52-year-old man is facing a slew of charges, including his fifth DWI, after leading authorities on a high-speed chase that spanned three parishes Thursday.

The Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office said Marty Jamison Sr. of Napoleonville drove at speeds over 100 mph while fleeing from deputies who were trying to pull him over.

Jamison was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on the following charges:

DWI 5th offense

Aggravated assault with a motor vehicle upon a peace officer

Aggravated flight from an officer

Aggravated criminal damage to property

Operating a vehicle while under suspension for prior DWI

Reckless operation

Open container

Driving left of center

Improper lane usage

General speeding

Stop sign violations (9 counts)

No turn signals (12 counts)

Traffic control signals (2 counts)

Vehicles must yield at railroad crossings

No seatbelt

Bond has not been set.

Sheriff Mike Waguespack said one of his deputies on a routine patrol got behind a car doing 30 mph in a 55 mph zone. He added after seeing the car cross the center line near LA 308 and LA 70 Spur in Paincourtville the deputy turned on his flashing lights to stop the car.

According to reports, the driver sped up to about 90 mph. Authorities said he blew through the Bertrandville area, eventually made it back onto LA 70 and headed into Ascension Parish. They added in addition to the speed, he committed several other traffic violations.

Deputies said Jamison then headed north on LA 1 at speeds over 100 mph and went into Iberville Parish, where he finally slowed down and pulled onto the shoulder. However, instead of stopping, officials said he made a u-turn. One of the deputies that had been chasing him tried to box him in, but investigators said Jamison rammed the passenger side of the patrol unit.

Waguespack said at that point, the deputy jumped out of his car and fired three rounds into one of the suspect's tires. He added the suspect's car soon stopped and Jamison was taken into custody. He reported the arresting deputies smelled alcohol on Jamison's breath and saw an open beer bottle in the car. According to a news release, the deputies also found a gun in a paper bag in the vehicle.

Authorities noted Jamison has had two recent DWI arrests and a possession of cocaine arrest pending in court from Oct. 8, 2012 and Jan. 20, 2013.
