Chase suspect under arrest

December 12, 2005

Bainbridge, Georgia-- A Bainbridge man is facing charges for leading police on a car chase with a child in his vehicle.

The 30 minute chase started Saturday on Donalson Street and ended with a foot pursuit in Cheney Griffin Park. The Chevy Astro van involved never reached excessive speeds, but the driver did ignore several traffic signals.

Officers say they're not sure why Mark Smith ran, but are glad they got him stopped because there was a three year old in the van.

Smith is charged with defective equipment, failure to stop at a stop sign, attempting to elude, and reckless driving.
