At about 1:24 a.m., Officer F.

Officer Kelly pursued the vehicle approximately 10 miles to the intersection of Hwy 77 and HWY 21. As the driver attempted to make the turn at high speed west on Hwy 21 the vehicle went into the ditch and spun out. The driver regained control and headed West on Hwy 21. After approximately 4 miles the vehicle left the roadway and ran through a barbwire fence. The vehicle lost power and stopped. The driver and passenger both exited the vehicle and ran westbound to a wooded area. Deputy Sheriff Easley and Deputy Sheriff Carvin pursued the driver who had made it over two fences and was headed into the woods. Officer Kelly pursued the passenger approximately 80 yards where he was apprehended. Deputy Sheriff Easley and Deputy Sheriff Carvin returned with the driver in custody. The driver was found to have a usable amount of marijuana on his person. The suspects had a fuel container with fuel inside the vehicle. The suspects were found to be "huffing" fuel fumes.

Both subjects were transported to the Lee County Jail without further incident.
