TWIN FALLS — Last year, a high-speed chase driver pleaded guilty to an amended felony drug possession charge after police shot and killed a passenger, court records say.
Sidney Gibson, 19, was first charged with felony evading police after being chased on U.S. Highway 30 on August 26.
Prosecutors have offered a plea bargain, amending the charge of possession of a controlled substance. Gibson said he signed the contract on March 2nd.
According to the complaint, Gibson was in possession of meth or amphetamines around August 26, and police tracked her from Filer to Twin Falls and back to Buhl via Filer, according to the complaint.
Gibson’s car was stranded in a field north of Buhl, and an investigation revealed that passenger Caleb Tussey opened fire on police officers in a law enforcement vehicle. The police returned fire and killed him.
