The HCSO deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the car, a green Honda Accord, did not stop and instead led the deputy to a chase in Cleburne County, Ala.

While in Cleburne County, the driver left I-20 and crossed several back roads before getting onto I-20 EB, returning to Georgia. Georgia State Patrol was called to assist in the car arrest.

GSP entered the chase around the Haralson/Carroll County line and performed a Precision Mobilization Technique, or PIT maneuver, on the Honda Accord in an attempt to stop it.

The PIT maneuver managed to stop the car, but Brown got out of the car and drove off. A search perimeter was set up and several agencies joined in the search.

Later, Brown was located and taken into custody in Carroll County.
