The sheriff says the driver, Dakota Moore, did not have a license and would not get out of the vehicle like the deputy ordered.

The deputy tried to remove Moore from the vehicle, but says Moore tried to put the keys in the ignition and start the vehicle. The deputy used a taser on Mullins but that did not stop him from speeding off.

Deputies began chasing Moore, getting up to speeds exceeding 70 miles per hour.

Deputies say, after a short distance, Moore got out and began running from the scene toward a subdivision

People were able to stop him from getting inside a crawl space at one of the homes and he was placed under arrest.

Authorities say two adults and a one-year-old child were inside the vehicle at the time of the chase.

No one was injured, and the other adults were questioned and released.
