Investigators say 21-year-old Morris Thompson was speeding on highway 122 Monday.

When deputies arrested him, they found marijuana in his car. He's charged with several traffic violations, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, felony eluding police, and aggravated assault on a peace officer.
