BUTTS COUNTY, Ga. - Police have released the dash cam video of a deputy using the pit maneuver to end a chase with a sex offender wanted for failing to register.
It all started when a Butts County Sheriff’s deputy clocked a car traveling 88 miles per hour in a 70 mph zone. When the deputy ran the driver’s name it came back with warrant out of Illinois.
The deputy asked him to get out of the car, but he sped off and there was a chase.
Speeds reached 130 miles per hour.
The deputy eventually performed a PIT maneuver to stop the car.
The driver then tried to run away, so the deputy used a stun gun on him before arresting him.
He now faces a list of charges including fleeing, speeding, reckless driving, and driving without a license.
