POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) -- The trucker who deputies say led them on a chase through three northeast Kansas counties, waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Robert Smith appeared in Pottawatomie County District Court, where prosecutors have filed 11 charges against him, including attempted second degree murder and aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer.

The chase in October stretched from Shawnee County, to just north of Wamego, and resulted in four people being hospitalized.

Smith will be arraigned on the charges December 22nd.
