Worth County- State troopers say Willis Cooper of Sylvester refused to pull his truck over during a traffic stop around midnight Thursday.

Worth County deputies chased him at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. Cooper slammed into Deputy William Parker's patrol car.

Cooper jumped out of his car and took off on foot before deputies caught him. [

"He said you know I don't know what I was thinking and he was under the influence and obviously not thinking straight,but he would have been a lot better off I he had pulled over. With a DUI we would have suspended his license for 6 months, and he'd have to spend a night in jail, but he would have been out today, " says Trooper Kyle Long.

Cooper will be charged by the State Patrol and the Worth County Sheriff's Department. He faces nearly a dozen charges... including aggravated assault on an officer and felony obstruction.
