A Rome man is facing felony charges after tossing out a bag containing drugs, a gun -- and his ID -- during a police chase, reports stated.

According to Floyd County Jail reports:

Tykevion Zykail Zenae Lawrence, 21, was driving at high speeds and crossing double yellow lines when police attempted to pull him over around 8 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Old School Road and Old Summerville Road.
