Police: One in jail after wild ride, chair thrown at officer

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

At least one person was taken into custody after a suspected reckless driver ran from police and threw a chair at an officer.

Sylvester Police officers responded around 8:30 a.m. to a home on Moore Street after a 911 call about a man who was driving up and down the road and had hit at a vehicle in a yard.

When authorities arrived, officers and a family member tried to restrain the suspect, identified as 40-year-old Christopher Deariso, but he ran away and threw a chair, hitting an officer.

Deariso was arrested and taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, after telling authorities that he wanted to kill himself.
