FAIRBANKS - A Fairbanks man has been charged with attempted murder after he allegedly went on a drive-by shooting spree and led police on a high-speed chase.

Leonard ``Danny'' Roach Jr., 22, was charged with two counts of attempted murder for allegedly firing randomly at occupants of a car and third-degree assault for allegedly trying to run down an Alaska State Trooper.

Roach is accused of firing into at least two occupied cars early Friday before leading police on a chase for several miles.

During the chase, Roach allegedly swerved toward a state trooper laying out a tire-deflation strip to slow the speeding car.
