A 33-year-old Finley man suspected of destroying two police cars earlier this week is in court today for his preliminary arraignment.

Shane DeWeber is tentatively charged with 2 counts of assault in the 1st degree.

According to police, DeWeber led officers on a high speed chase and destroyed two patrol cars, before getting in a fight with two officers early Tuesday morning.

A man claiming to be DeWeber's best friend said DeWeber was not trying to hurt anyone, he says he was only trying to take his own life to remove himself from the situation.

The court considers DeWeber a flight risk so he's being held at the Benton County Jail without bail.

Deweber will be arraigned October 16th.
