Nicholas Peterson, 26, died at the scene.
Prosecutors allege that Rodrique Johnston, 42, was high on methamphetamine at the time of the crash. Police reported that he was driving a stolen Honda when he led an officer on a short, high-speed pursuit. Johnston allegedly lost control of the car, hit a ditch and smashed into a house. No one in the house was hurt, but one man was thrown from the couch inside.
Johnston has 26 misdemeanor convictions, the majority of which are driving offenses.
