Etowah County Deputies stopped a vehicle on U.S. 278 West near the county line on Thursday and as the deputy walked back to his patrol car to check the license information, a male and female exited the vehicle on the passenger side.
The deputy pursued the vehicle as it crossed into Blount County with speeds reaching 100 mph where he lost sight of it and notified surrounding agencies.
Authorities determined the fleeing driver was 28 year old Jonathan Clyde Harris. Boaz police later took Harris into custody on Alabama 205 near Coosa Drive in Boaz.
Deputies say a search of the vehicle revealed methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, a .40-caliber Glock handgun, a 12-gauge sawed-off shotgun and drug paraphernalia.
Harris was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of marijuana, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a short-barreled shotgun, attempt to elude, and several moving violations. He also has warrants with the Albertville Police Department.
