Last Wednesday, a chase began when a Georgia State trooper attempted to stop 29-year-old Thomas Larry Burns of Deer Park Drive, Chatsworth for speeding on Red Cut Road.
According to reports, Burns fled in a chase into Bradley County and Polk County.
Officers from the Tennessee counties were also part of the chase in addition to Murray County deputies and the Georgia State Patrol.
Stop sticks were set out twice in an effort to stop the driver, but they were avoided each time.
Burns eventually jumped a ditch off Davis Road in Bradley County and got out of the vehicle and ran into the woods.
Murray County deputy Rena Coffey was called in to bring her tracking dog as none were available in Tennessee.
Officers found Burns lying down on the ground and he was arrested without incident.
Burns was charged with felony evading, felony reckless endangerment of an officer and five other counts of reckless endangerment in Tennessee.
The GSP is expected to file additional charges as Burns is wanted for probation violation in Whitfield County.
Last Thursday, officials said six teams of Murray officers and other departments including the Georgia State Patrol, Drug Enforcement Administration and state parole and probation departments, began rounding up 128 individuals with outstanding warrants.
Murray County Sheriff Gary Langford is reminding residents that the Sheriff’s Office has an anonymous crime tip line that citizens can call to report a crime or the location of someone who has outstanding warrants. The number is 706-422-4066.
