On Tuesday morning a 24-year-old Bartow County man was arrested in Carroll County after leading police on a car chase.  

 According to the Haralson County Sheriff’s Office, at around 7:20 AM, a Sheriff’s deputy on I-20 clocked a green Honda Accord speeding at 140 MPH. The deputy initiated a traffic stop and the green Honda refused to comply.

The chase went into Cleburne County Alabama where the driver left I-20 and went through several backroads before getting on I-20 EB. As the pursuit continued, the Georgia State Patrol was called in to assist.

The Georgia State Patrol entered the chase around the Haralson/Carroll County line and did perform a PIT (Precision Mobilization Technique) maneuver on the Honda Accord.

When the vehicle came to a stop, the driver, now identified as 24-year-old Lenny Brown of a Cartersville address, took off on foot. A perimeter was set up and multiple agencies assisted in the search for Brown.

This closed one lane of I-20 around the Center Point Bridge area until Brown was found and arrested
