Suspect In Custody After High Speed Pursuit

KENLY – A suspect is in custody after a high speed chase that started in the Kenly city limits and later ended in the Kenly city limits. Around 9:05pm Friday, a deputy sheriff was traveling on US 301 in Kenly and attempted to stop a passenger car for a traffic offense.

The driver refused to pull over, and soon accelerated to speeds of nearly 100 miles per hour, while fleeing on NC 222 West, NC 42, NC 39, and eventually back into the Kenly city limits.

While traveling in the 300 block of S. Alford Avenue, the fleeing driver suddenly stopped and surrendered.

Johnston County deputies and Kenly Police took Octaevius Tiquan Bunn, 23, of Wilmack Drive, Benson into custody. Bunn was held on a $30,000 secured bond charged with fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving, speeding, no insurance, no operator’s license, open container of alcohol, and fictitious registration.

No injuries were reported.


  1. Why do young people throw away their lives? 100 MPH means he did not care if he killed someone along with a LEO. This kid is a total shmuck with no future in sight. The only smart thing he did was decide to stop and that shows that he has a working mind. I just hope he decides to do something with it.

    • Shut up stop acting like you never made mistakes when you were young you should sweep around your own door steps before you go judging someone else STEVEN 😂
