Suspect Arrested After High-Speed Chase

One man is behind bars, facing several charges after a high-speed chase on Interstate 95 overnight. The chase started at Highways 21 and 30, and ended when Port Wentworth police had pull what's called a pit maneuver on I-95 near the South Carolina border.

It all started when the driver, 35-year-old Robert Washington, was pulled over by police. He stopped, then decided to take off. He even went the wrong way several times on interstate ramps before continuing north on 95.

Washington was finally forced off the road by a Port Wentworth officer. He was taken to the Chatham County jail and faces charges of fleeing and eluding, with car theft charges pending.
