October 22, 2013 

The Atascadero man who led police on a wild 40-plus mile chase on Highway 41 in Fresno, through Oakhurst and several miles into Yosemite National Park, will appear before Judge Wieland for a bail review hearing on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 9 a.m, followed immediately by a pre-preliminary hearing. He will be represented by defense attorney, Tim Kelly.

Moore, 34, is charged with driving under the influence, felony evading, possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamines), being in possession of drug paraphernalia (pipe), possession of marijuana, and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Moore, who is a self-proclaimed "Blood" gang member, according to the Madera County Sheriff's Department, is also scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 29 at 10 a.m.

All hearings will take place in Madera County Superior Court in Bass Lake.

The chase ensued when Fresno police attempted to stop the vehicle after they learned the car had been taken from impound after previously being reported stolen.

Christie Asberry, 38, of Paso Robles, Moore's companion during this incident was taken to Fresno County, where the pursuit originally began.
