An Anchorage man who initiated a car chase involving the Soldotna Police Department and Alaska State Troopers was arraigned in Kenai on Friday.
Bryson McEneaney, 28, appeared for his rescheduled arraignment at 10 a.m. at the Kenai Courthouse, where he was arraigned on a number of misdemeanors and felony charges. These included reckless driving, providing false information, reckless endangerment, theft, burglary and others.
McEneaney is charged with three Class C felonies, one Class B felony, three Class A misdemeanors and one Class B misdemeanor. If he is found to have prior convictions, District Court Judge Sharon Illsley said he will face a minimum of six years for the class B felony and a minimum of three years for each class C felony.
Altogether, McEneaney could face up to 27 years in jail and a fine of up to $270,000 if convicted.
McEneaney also has an outstanding warrant stemming from three charges made against him in Anchorage court. In October 2014, he was charged with theft in the second degree, vehicle theft in the first degree and driving without a valid license.
McEneaney was scheduled to appear in court in Anchorage on June 17, but failed to do so. His next court date at the Boney Courthouse in Anchorage is July 1.
McEneaney’s preliminary in-custody hearing in Kenai is set for July 6, and his out-of-custody hearing is set for July 16.
