HIDALGO COUNTY - Authorities arrested a 22-year-old man after a chase that ended in a rollover in Penitas.

The suspect, Adrian Lopez, went before a judge Thursday afternoon. He was charged with evading arrest.

Authorities said Lopez had warrants for parole violation.

La Joya police said Lopez was travelling east on Expressway 83 in La Joya when he refused to pull over for officers.

He led the officer on a chase to Penitas where he lost control of his car. The vehicle rolled and landed upside down.

Officers found syringes where the car rolled over, but it was later determined they didn't belong to Lopez.

Bond for Lopez was set at $4,000.
