GEORGE COUNTY, Miss. (WKRG) – A Leakesville man was arrested after allegedly fleeing from deputy sheriffs in George County.

Stone allegedly fled from the deputy, reaching speeds over 90 miles per hour.
The chase ended at Salem Campground and Old Americus Roads where Stone was arrested for fleeing law enforcement in a motor vehicle and taken to George County Regional Correctional Facility.
