According to court records filed Wednesday in a Carroll County court, Chandler David Webb, 22 is charged with a single felony for resisting arrest by fleeing.

The charge was filed against Webb after he refused to pull over for a traffic stop in Ray County on Sunday, November 4.

Two Ray County sheriff’s deputies and a Richmond police officer initiated a pursuit which led them into Carroll County, where they were joined by deputies with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department.

Webb, who was reportedly traveling at an extreme rate of speed, was eastbound on Route D as he entered Carroll County and failed to stop at a total of seven stop signs within the county as the pursuit continued.

A probable cause statement alleges that Webb contacted a family member during the pursuit, which lasted two hours, 50 minutes and covered more than 147 miles, and stated that he “was not going to stop for anything.”

The chase, which started in Ray County, traveled through Carroll, Caldwell and Dekalb Counties, where it came to an end when Webb’s vehicle was disabled by spike strips deployed by authorities.

Webb is currently in custody at the Chariton County Jail, held on $25,000 cash-only bond.

Future court dates have not yet been set.
