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.

    jenny cone, 4 counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, this is more than a simple mistake. He had 19 miles to end this mistake. If he had nothing to begin with, the cops would have completed their investigation and he would have been on his way quicker than it took him to run 19 miles. If he was being pulled over for nothing at all as has been suggested, then he should have pulled over and then afterward file a complaint for being pulled over possibly even for violating his civil rights. At the moment he decided to run he became guilty of at least eluding.

    If we as a society weren't so liberal in our punishments, we could lessen this kind of thing. Lock this punk up for life, he won't do this again, but instead due to the bleeding herats who feel bad for violent criminals, we will give him a light sentence and he will be back out to cause more trouble. If we got stricter in punishing people, life in prison for ONE violent offense like this(this punk could've killed innocent people)-at the very least you would stop people from doing this kind of thing five or six times.

    I am glad he did not kill someone running for his life from thugs with guns and a free ride to shoot and be cleared in an internal investigation. These cops are completely out of control and we are powerless to do anything about them. Just like the gorilla's in "Planet of the Apes". Do ya'll remember that show. It was a prediction of the future.
