OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s office (OSCO) took a man into custody after he led them on a chase Wednesday morning, which resulted in one person being hit. 

The man tried to flee from deputies and in the process, caused several hit and run traffic crashes and struck one pedestrian, according to a Facebook post from the OSCO. 

The “mayhem” started near Baker, but ended on Highway 90 in Crestview after deputies stopped him.
