RAY TWP. (WWJ) - Additional charges have been filed against a 27-year-old Macomb County man who was chased by car and on foot before he was captured. 

Wild dash and body camera video released by the Macomb County Sheriff's Office Tuesday shows the pursuit of Aniano Arreola-Mora that took officers from Clinton Township to Sterling Heights to rural Ray Township on Sunday. 

**PLEASE NOTE: The video below is unedited and contains profanity and intense situations. Viewer discretion is advised. 

Raw video shows a deputy chasing an older model tan Cadillac on Garfield south of Hall Rd. As the deputy tries to stop the car from heading into oncoming traffic on 26 Mile Rd, in the roundabout east of M-53, the suspect and deputy's vehicles twice collide.

Arreola-Mora doesn't stop, however, reaching speeds of around 90 mph as he continues down a dirt road. When he tries to cut through the backyard of a home on Ray Center Road, allegedly causing some property damage, the car gets stuck in the mud. He then continues on foot, setting off a foot chase through flooded woods that ends in a field with his arrest.

No injuries were reported. A sheriff’s vehicle incurred some minor damage.

The sheriff's office said Arreola-Mora, a Ray Township resident, was arraigned in 42-1 District Court in Romeo Tuesday on the two felony counts: Police Officer – Fleeing – Third Degree – Vehicle Code. and Police Officer – Assaulting/Resisting/Obstructing. He was also charged with one misdemeanor count of Malicious Destruction – Trees, Shrubs, Crops, Grass, Turf, Soil - $200 or More But Less Than $1,000.

These charges are in addition to drug possession and fleeing charges previously filed in Clinton Township, where Arreola-Mora is accused of throwing cocaine out the car window as the chase began. 

Arreola-Mora remains held on a $25,000, 10% bond awaiting his next court appearance set for Wednesday.
