He is accused of driving in excess of 25 mph over the speed limit during the pursuit. The chase ended on Duane Avenue, about three or four blocks away, where he crashed his car, according to papers.
He got out and fled on foot, but officers soon took him into custody on Strong Street, according to court documents.
Prince is also accused of possessing 12 plastic corner baggies of crack cocaine, according to court documents.
Prince faces one count each of third-degree and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies.
He also faces misdemeanor counts of unlawfully fleeing a police officer, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.
Prince was under parole supervision after his February release from a 10-year prison sentence for a 2009 gunpoint robbery of a 17-year-old, records show.
