MOBIL:E, Ala. (WALA) - Jermaine Gillis, 18, was released on bond from Mobile County Metro jail less than 24-hours after Mobile Police said he sent them on a high speed chase - throwing drugs out the window and damaging a patrol officer's vehicle.
Gillis faces eight charges, including possession of a firearm with altered ID and possession of marijuana.
This most recent run-in with the law, however, comes as police said Gillis was already out on bond for an alleged January 2013 shooting on Octavia Drive.
"He went to his residence and knocked on his door. When the victim opened the door he began shooting at him," said Cpl. Chris Levy with the Mobile Police Department.
Mobile Police said Gillis fired several rounds at a man known to him, over an ongoing dispute over money.
The victim was shot in the stomach and leg and taken to Springhill Hospital.
Gillis was charged with second-degree assault and bonded out.
While out on bond, Police said Gillis initiated a police chase on Dauphin Island Parkway after he refused to pull over during a traffic stop.
The chase ended on McVay Drive where authorities said Gillis crashed into a ditch and knocked down a tree.
He and a passenger, Carl Freed, were arrested and charged. Both teens bonded out in less than a day.
Mobile Police said the charges that applied to both teens' were ones that have pre-set bonds attached to them.
Authorities told FOX10 that a detective would have been assigned to the case and worked to keep Gillis in jail had the crimes been more violent.
Police said they still plan to ask that Gillis' first bond be revoked at his next court date.
