Lee County - A 16 year old driver tried to out run a sheriff's deputy and wound up in a lot of trouble. A Lee County deputy tried to stop the teen on Highway 82 west of Cookville Thursday afternoon.

He was going 75MPH in a 55MPH zone. But the teen sped up and tried to turn down a dirt road to escape. He was forced to stop when he found out the road was blocked off.

"You may think you can run from the law, but generally we'll catch you. If we can't then, we'll catch you later on. The prices to pay is pretty strong," said Major Reggie Rachals.

The other two teens in the truck didn't get into any trouble, but they did get quite a scare. The three said they missed school to go to a funeral. The driver was released to the custody of his mother. He's charged with speeding, attempting to elude police, and reckless driving. He most likely will lose his license for a while.
