(Ardmore-AP) -- A Carter County judge has set bonds of $4.5-million for a man who allegedly led officers on a chase in southern Oklahoma.

Dale Eugene Gray Junior is accused of running several vehicles off the road, ramming others and running roadblocks in a stolen pickup truck earlier this week.

The 29-year-old faces attempted assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, failure to stop at a roadblock and attempting to elude police counts. Bonds were set at $500,000 for each nine counts.

Authorities say Gray was fleeing Texas troopers when he crossed the border into Oklahoma.

He allegedly ran several roadblocks and struck vehicles to block his pursuers. In a collision with one vehicle, the right front tire of the truck blew out and a trooper ran him off the highway.
