CORAL SPRINGS, FL – A 32-year-old Coral Springs man who took police on a pursuit through the city’s downtown on Tuesday faces 24 charges including carjacking, home invasion, and domestic battery, according to court records.

Jeremy Evans remained at Broward County Jail on Wednesday after he allegedly fled from police in two cars, a bike, and on foot on Sample Road and surrounding neighborhoods following an argument with his girlfriend at his home in the 16100 block of NW 39 Street during which he hit a child, police said.

By the time he was arrested on University Drive, Evans allegedly crashed a car that either he or his girlfriend owned, broke into a house and stole a car from there, and then, after crashing the second car, stole a bike as he continued fleeing from police, police said.
