Court records were updated Friday afternoon, March 21, to show McArtor-Tank faces several charges in connection with the March 17 incident.  Those charges include one felony count of possession of a stolen vehicle, two misdemeanor counts of attempting to elude a police officer and one misdemeanor count of reckless driving.
