BRISTOL, Va. -

A Bristol, Virginia man is facing charges after police say he led them on a car chase.

Police say they saw Gregory H. Dye in a parking lot on Linden Drive. Detectives tried to stop him but he refused.

The suspect finally stopped his vehicle on Interstate 81 at the top of the southbound on-ramp of Exit 7. Dye was arrested and charged with driving on a suspended license and felony evading arrest.

We're told Dye is suspected in several theft cases across Bristol and Washington County, Virginia. Other charges are pending for those cases.
