Thomas County Narcotics agents say they were acting on a drug tip Friday afternoon (1/14) when they tried to pull over Donald Prevatt.

Instead of slowing down, they say the 22-year-old took off down Patten Speedway Road and managed to elude them for 19 miles.

TCSO says at one point, Prevatt even crashed through a road block, and sent agents diving out of harm's way.

Investigators finally caught the 22-year-old when he pulled over and tried to get away on foot.

Prevatt faces charges for felony eluding and 4 counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

No drugs were found in the vehicle.
