Update (1:43 p.m.):

A man arrested Monday faced charges of possession of crack cocaine and obstruction Tuesday during an 8 a.m. Recorder's Court hearing.

Officer Jason Swails told the court that Timothy George Mays, 36, was initially stopped after police received reports of a suspicious vehicle driving around Morris Road. When Swails clocked Mays on radar, he was traveling 126 mph on Morris Road in a 35 mph speed zone.

Mays eventually abandoned the Cadillac Seville he was driving and ran into a trailer on the 800 block of Morris Road, Swails said. When he talked to a woman residing inside the trailer, she told Swails that Mays ran out the back door of the trailer and she wasn't sure where he was. Mays was later found inside the trailer.

In a pile of clothes that Mays changed out of when he ran into the trailer, Swails allegedly found a crack pipe.

When Swails asked Mays why he was traveling so fast, he allegedly replied that he was in a hurry to get home.

The car Mays was driving came back as unregistered and uninsured. Mays said he was not the owner and that he was working on the car for the owner.

Cielinski noted Mays was declared a habitual violator in 2009.

Mays' bond was set at $10,850.
