A man recently released from prison is now back in custody after a high speed chase.

 It happened Tuesday night in Echols County.
   
The sheriff's office says George Fleming, 56, of Florida, was driving a stolen vehicle, taken from a construction company in Douglas

His vehicle went through a fence and he  jumped out and ran away, and deputies used a taser to arrest him.

Fleming is facing several charges, including attempted to elude police and obstruction of an officer. 

Fleming had just been released from prison on April 13, after serving time for a similar offense.  He was transported to Lowndes County Jail.
