A man from Cumming is jailed in Forsyth County after a chase through Hall County Monday afternoon.
Just after 4 p.m., Hall County deputies responded to reports of a wrong-way driver on Interstate 985 in Hall County.
The sheriff’s office said the Dodge Challenger was heading north in the southbound lanes near Ga. 347 / Friendship Road.
After exiting the interstate at Friendship Road, the driver traveled north in the correct lane before deputies witnessed the car driving in the grass median near Spout Springs Road, the sheriff’s office reported.
Deputies attempted to stop the car, but the driver continued north at a high rate of speed, passing cars in the gore and on the shoulder near Ga. 60 / Candler Highway.
After the car exited onto U.S. 129 / Athens Highway, the driver headed toward Gainesville and deputies lost sight of the vehicle in traffic.
The sheriff’s office said the preliminary investigation shows that Ryan Hunter Stinson, 26, of Cumming, left Hall County on Ga. 369 / Browns Bridge Road and was arrested by Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputies later the same date.
Hall County deputies have obtained warrants for Stinson’s arrest on the following charges: Felony fleeing/attempting to elude, as well as misdemeanor reckless driving, speeding, crossing the gore, and failure to maintain lane.
The Georgia State Patrol also has charges in the case.
