Fleeing 100MPH driver had kids in car

LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) -

About 8:30 Monday night, a Sparks Police officer chased a car into Lowndes County on I-75, at speeds near 100 miles an hour.

As the pursuit traveled south, the driver of the fleeing vehicle tried to ram law enforcement. Near Exit 2, a Georgia State trooper performed a P.I.T. maneuver, causing the vehicle to spin and strike the guardrail.

As deputies attempted to arrest the driver, Adrian Garner, he continued to attempt to get away by pressing the accelerator and shifting gears. They got Garner out of the car, and found a woman and two children, ages 3 and 1, in the car.

They were all OK, and were all taken to a local motel by deputies.

Garner was taken to the Lowndes County Jail, and will appear in the Lowndes County Magistrate Court for an arraignment hearing this afternoon.

Adrian Levar Garner, 34, lives on McNamee Street in Leesburg, Florida. He is charged with Aggravated assault on a peace officer, Fleeing and attempting to elude, Reckless driving, Driving with a suspended license, Speeding, and Failure to restrain child, two counts.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 229 671-2950; or anonymous tips can be provided at 229 671-2985, or on line at www.lowndessheriff.com.
