St. Mary Parish Authorities initiated a stop after noticing a burnt-out tail light.  John Sonnier with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office says agents tried to pull the car over on Martin Luther King Boulevard in Baldwin, but the suspects in the car sped away, leading officers on a high-speed chase into Iberia Parish. Agents say they noticed the driver throwing a bottle out of the vehicle during the chase. The suspects were eventually stopped in Jeanerette.

Police say they found marijuana inside the vehicle. The driver Renwic White and Brian Wilson, both of Baldwin, as well as Broderick Colbert of Jeanerette and an unnamed 16-year old were arrested.

White faces numerous drug and car-related charges. There have been no bonds set at this time.
