ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

A Dougherty County man, caught on video throwing a kilo of coke into the Flint River, pleads guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and now could be facing a life in prison sentence.

43 year old Gregory Greene plead guilty to all 29 counts against him. Green has been convicted twice before on drug distribution issues.

The main evidence against Greene, this very dramatic and clear dash cam video from January of Albany Dougherty Drug Unit officers chasing him through South Albany.  Before he bailed out of this still moving car on the Oakridge Bridge and throws a package into the Flint River. But Drug Agents say the package floated, and inside was $120,000 worth of cocaine.

Sentencing is set for November 4th.
