A Conyers man faces multiple charges after initiating a high speed chase that raced 75 miles southbound down Interstates 75 and 475 on Thursday night.
About 9:30 p.m., Lamar County deputies tried to stop Da’vion Watson for traffic violations near mile marker 201 on Interstate 75 but he sped off, reaching speeds of about 130 mph, according to preliminary reports.
Monroe, Bibb and Dooly deputies joined in their counties, and a Georgia State Patrol trooper also entered the chase near the split at Interstate 475.
That trooper left the chase when it entered the next patrol jurisdiction farther south, according to the GSP.
Never miss a local story.
Officers along the way tried stop sticks a couple of times, but Watson kept going.
Near Vienna, another trooper got beside the vehicle at about mile marker 114, and did the PIT maneuver and Watson was arrested.
The precision immobilization technique uses a patrol car to force the fleeing car to turn sideways abruptly, causing the driver to lose control and stop.
