The Spectrum of St. George reports (http://bit.ly/1pOaIpT ) attorneys for 35-year-old Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker expect a plea deal to be finalized next month on Utah charges. Walker has pleaded not guilty to drug and evading police charges.
Court documents show Walker, of Hermosa Beach, California, has reached a plea deal on Arizona charges.
Utah Highway Patrol troopers arrested Walker in January 2013 near St. George to end a chase that began in Nevada and crossed into Arizona before reaching Utah. They reported finding methamphetamine, marijuana and vodka in the car.
NASCAR suspended Walker in 2007 for violating its substance abuse policy.
