An Alcorn County man made a run from law enforcement Friday morning during a chase lasting about 20 minutes.
Dylan Gene King, 28, of County Road 105, was charged with felony fleeing and possession of a controlled substance, as well as the misdemeanor charges of expired tag, driving with a suspended license, no insurance, seat belt violations and disregard for a traffic control device.
Alcorn County Chief Deputy Dusty Essary said the pursuit reached speeds of 100 mph and crossed the Tennessee border after originating in North Corinth.
Deputy Chris Settlemires attempted a traffic stop of King on North Shiloh Road. It was known the driver had a couple of outstanding warrants.
King did not yield, and a pursuit began. After crossing into McNairy County, the pursuit came back south into northern Alcorn County and ended on Road 711, where King drove into a corn field and stalled. He was taken into custody after a brief foot chase, Essary said.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol assisted with the pursuit and deployed stop sticks.
King was in custody at the county jail Friday afternoon awaiting an appearance before a justice court judge.
