Instead of stopping the driver reportedly accelerated onto Highway 42 crossing the centerline several times and nearby striking an oncoming SUV, authorities said. The fleeing driver then turned into a mobile home park where he jumped and ran from his pickup.
Paul Richard Simpson, 51, was captured a short distance away.
Simpson was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest, driving while impaired, failure to stop at a stop sign, reckless driving, and driving on a revoked license. Simpson refused to submit to a breathalyzer test.
Deputies said the chase never reached speeds above 60 MPH. Officers seized the Chevy S-10 truck Simpson was allegedly operating.
Simpson was given a $20,000 bond.
