A high speed chase in Cherokee County overnight Sunday ended with a resident from Georgia being apprehended and placed under arrest.
Around 1:00am Monday (August 22nd), Centre Police Officer Michael Kilgore clocked a white Jeep on Main Street in Centre, doing 98 mph in a 35 – Officer Kilgore initiated his lights and siren, however the driver ignored the attempted stop, and continued to travel down East Main toward Highway 411 at a high rate of speed. The pursuit continued for around 10 to 12 miles prior to coming to a stop – when the Jeep’s motor ceased working.
At that point the vehicle exited the roadway – making contact with a tree in the wood line. The driver, who was later identified as Dartanya Hindsman of Norcross, Georgia was evaluated by medical staff – and transported to the Cherokee County Jail without incident for charges of Attempting to Elude and Reckless Endangerment.
