Grady and Decatur County Sheriffs' Offices chased James Wright (6/4) after he nearly took out a deputy Saturday afternoon.

They say Wright hit speeds of over 100 miles an hour during the chase.

The Grady County Sheriff's Office says Wright stopped only after he lost control of his car and crashed off Highway 84 West.

He suffered only minor injuries and faces reckless driving and DUI charges.

    True. Nearly running someone over - a deputy, no less - and then fleeing at fast, reckless speeds away from said deputy is clearly profiling. Good job.
