A teen wanted by authorities after a car chase Monday night has been arrested.
Timothy Midgyett, Jr., led deputies on a short vehicle chase from Prathersville Road to the intersection of Highway 763 and Smiley Lane after deputies tried to stop him at about 10 p.m. Monday. The 18-year-old got out of his vehicle at the intersection and ran, eluding police until his arrest at about 2:45 a.m. Wednesday.
A search of the vehicle on Monday turned up several packages of marijuana that appeared to have been prepared for sale.
He was arrested Wednesday for trespassing, failing to yield to an emergency vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance, driving with a suspended/revoked license and reckless driving.
