Atkingson County - A high speed chase in South Georgia ends in a crash.

An Atkinson County deputy tried to pull over 22-year-old Justin Neil Hogg for reckless driving on Highway 82 near Pearson. He wouldn't stop and was chased by Pearson and Willacoochee Police, the Georgia State Patrol, and the Atkinson County Sheriff's Department.

Hogg turned onto a dirt road, hit a tree stump, and started running through a peanut field. Police used search dogs from Ware State Prison and found him hiding in the woods.

He's in the Atkinson County jail charged with driving on a suspended license, D-U-I, eluding an officer, and several other traffic charges.
