A 20-year-old Jefferson man attempting to elude a Banks County Sheriff’s Office deputy made a wrong turn and ended up at the sheriff’s offices.
On Saturday, Sept. 11, a deputy patrolling Highway 15/441 using radar clocked a vehicle going in excess of the speed limit.
When the deputy turned around to stop the vehicle, the driver, Zach Dean Williams, 98 Dixon Drive, Jefferson, reportedly sped up even faster to attempt to elude the deputy. But Williams, being unfamiliar with the roads, turned into Windmill Farm Road at a high rate of speed and was blocked in by the deputy at the end of the road that leads to the sheriff’s office and jail.
Williams was arrested and charged with speeding, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, reckless driving, head/tail light requirements, weaving over the roadway, knowingly driving a motor vehicle on a suspended, cancelled or revoked registration, defective tires and failure to have driver’s license on person.
