•Anterrius Demarcus, Long, 29, of Carlton, was arrested for DUI/multiple substances, felony fleeing or attempting to elude police officer, reckless driving, speeding and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers by Deputy Mason Bennett on Jan. 24.

Bennett was on stationary patrol running radar while parked at Ferrell Gas. Co. near Ila just after midnight when he spotted a fast moving red Chevrolet Malibu that he clocked going 100 mph on Hwy. 106 South in the northbound lane. He pursued the vehicle with speeds reaching up to 125 mph with the driver (Long) showing no signs of stopping. The car did eventually stop near Joan Smith Road and Bennett approached Long with his service weapon drawn, telling him to throw his keys out of the window. Long refused, saying “@*(& you, I’m not going to so you can walk up here” and “I know I shouldn’t have ran,” and “I’m not getting shot today.”

Once a Georgia State Patrol officer arrived, Long threw his keys out and got out.

Long told them he had a 357 Magnum in the car. They also found three unopened beer cans and ammo for the gun in the center console, but no gun was found.

Bennett noted Long appeared to be intoxicated and he admitted he did drink alcohol but refused to submit to a state blood test.

•Karla Denise Ward, 54, of Colbert, was charged with DUI/multiple substances after Deputy Carolyn Gibson was dispatched to wreck on Childers Road on Jan. 23. The caller said a neighbor had backed through a fence and was possibly intoxicated.

Gibson found the car still running, straddling a ditch, with a woman (Ward) lying unconscious in the passenger front floorboard. EMS was called to check to check on her and Gibson noted she smelled strongly of alcohol. While waiting for EMS, Gibson attempted to wake her and eventually succeeded. Ward said she was not in pain except for her broken foot and she was still wearing a hospital bracelet.

After she was checked out by EMS she was arrested and taken to jail.
