GEORGIA (WRBL) – A Georgia man has been arrested after leading law enforcement officers on a chase that spanned three counties in two states. The Haralson County Sheriff’s Office has identified the individual as 24-year-old Lenny Brown, of Cartersville.
According to the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office, the incident began in Haralson County, Ga., Tuesday at around 7:20 a.m., when a Haralson County Deputy clocked a car being driven by Brown on 1-20 at a speed of 140 MPH.
The HCSO deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the vehicle, a green Honda Accord, did not comply and instead led the deputy on a chase into Cleburne County, Ala.
While in Cleburne County, the driver left I-20 and went through several backroads before getting on I-20 EB, making his way back into Georgia. Georgia State Patrol was called in to assist with the apprehension of the fleeing vehicle.
GSP entered the chase around the Haralson/Carroll County line and performed a Precision Mobilization Technique, or PIT maneuver, on the Honda Accord in an effort to stop the vehicle.
The PIT maneuver was able to successfully bring the vehicle to a stop, but Brown got out the car and ran away.
A search perimeter was set up and multiple agencies joined to assist in the search.
Later, Brown was located and taken into custody in Carroll County.
