CLAYTON – A teen driver was arrested Tuesday after he reportedly led several Johnston County deputies on a high speed chase. It started around 7:05pm when a patrol deputy attempted to stop the operator of a gold Chevrolet Impala on Grill Road for a violation.

The driver pulled onto the shoulder of Grill Road and stopped. As the deputy began exiting his patrol car the suspect sped away. The pursuit turned onto several secondary roads, at times reaching speeds up to 100 miles per hour.

At the intersection of Cleveland Road and Cornwallis Road, the driver stopped the car and surrendered.

Kha’lil Nasir Cameron of Lillington, NC was taken into custody without further incident. During a search of the Impala, officers said they found a 9mm handgun in the glove box.

Cameron was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon. Cameron was confined under a $15,000 secured bond at the Johnston County Jail.

His vehicle was seized under the NC Run and You’re Done Law.


  1. I just don’t understand why people flee the police especially if they haven’t really done anything wrong. This kid could have stopped, announced his weapon and lack of CCW permit and not been in nearly as much trouble as he is now. SMH.

  2. Agree, Jen R. In addition, he also could’ve easily severely injured or killed someone with his reckless driving!

  3. If every legal law abiding citizen was required to carry a loaded sidearm when in public the need for a reactive law enforcement would be less of a burden. This grown kid in this case would had been to much of a coward to have had that gun knowing every law abiding citizen had one too. He wouldn’t had felt he was so dominant in our society under those circumstances. Ever wonder why liberal DA’s wants to let a gun violaters like him go free and lock up and refuse a law abiding citizen their right to carry on technicalities? A Liberal DA will make a law abiding citizen an example should they need to lawfully defend thier self with thier fire arm in any situation.
