A federal court judge sentenced a 31-year-old North Charleston man to the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison without parole for a high-speed chase this year.

Dwight Fleming previously pleaded guilty to being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Charleston County sheriff's deputies arrested him Jan. 19 after an attempted traffic stop in North Charleston led to a chase down Interstate 26 into Charleston. Deputies tried to pull over a car about 1:30 p.m. near the Ashley Phosphate Road exit, but Fleming refused to stop and led police on a chase that went through the streets of North Charleston and back onto the interstate.

Fleming lost control of the car near the Morrison Drive off-ramp and jumped out. Authorities arrested him near King Street Extension on charges of unlawful possession of a pistol, driving under suspension and failure to stop for lights and sirens.
