A man accused of firing shot sat a Kansas State Trooper following a chase appears in court. Jason Gleason appeared on closed circuit television in front of Saline County judge early Friday morning.
He was formally charged with 14 counts including attempted first and second degree murder in Tuesday night's chase and shootout that left a KHP trooper, woman, and child injured.
Tuesday, a trooper attempted to stop an SUV suspected in a bank robbery in Chase.
Gleason was allegedly behind the wheel and fled from troopers traveling east on K-4 towards Gypsum in southeast Saline County.
The vehicle eventually wrecked and that's when authorities say Gleason got into shootout with KHP trooper Ryan Wolting.
Wolting was hit by broken glass, and a woman and child were also injured.
If Gleason is convicted on all 14 crimes, he could face more than 300 years behind bars.
He is being held on a $1 million bond and will be back in court Monday morning.
