A Booneville man led law enforcement on a chase reaching speeds in excess of 100 mph Monday before being stopped and arrested in Itawamba County.

Elvin Darren Farrar, 20, of 552 County Road 5011, Booneville has been charged with felony fleeing, along with numerous misdemeanor traffic offenses, and remains in the Prentiss County Jail on a $5,000 bond.

Farrar was driving a motorcycle when he fled from Prentiss County Deputy Torie Jumper after she attempted to make a traffic stop on him on Mississippi Highway 371 near Marietta in southern Prentiss County, said Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar.

The suspect led Jumper on a chase down Highway 371 through Marietta, Kirkville, Houston, Ozark and Mantachie. He was stopped at Highway 371 and Fawn Grove Road in Mantachie where Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson blocked the intersection.

Law enforcement radio traffic during the pursuit indicated the suspect was traveling as much as 120 mph as he fled from officers.

Tolar said he appreciates the assistance of Dickinson and his department in capturing the suspect.
