Two men were apprehended after leading a deputy on a high speed chase on Thursday in DeKalb County.
The chase began after the deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Highway 75 near Sylvania. When the deputy turned around, the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed and turned onto County Road 112.
The pursuit ended in a field after the driver and passenger fled on foot into a wooded area. Both were apprehended after a Drug Task Force Agent and a K-9 Deputy arrived on scene to assist.
The driver, Dustin Bell (32 of Rainsville) was charged with Attempting to Elude, Resisting Arrest, and Reckless Endangerment. The passenger, Dakota Hicks (22 of Valley Head) was charged with Attempting to Elude and Resisting Arrest.
Bell had existing warrants with the Geraldine Police Department, which was his stated reason for attempting to elude the deputy.
