DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

A man that is now in the Coffee County Jail is facing several charges after deputies pulled him over on Mora Road on Saturday.

Deputies got a complaint that the people inside the vehicle had exposed themselves on the side of a road.

The driver, Marcus Kirby, 22, of Adel, drove away while deputies were running his verifications.

Kirby led them on a high speed chase, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour. 

He ran over spike strips that were laid out at the intersection of GA-158 and Hebron Church Road, then officials blocked in his vehicle and he voluntarily stopped.

Kirby told officials that he drove away because his license was suspended and he didn't want to go to jail.

He now faces charges for fleeing, reckless driving, giving false information to law enforcement and numerous traffic violations.
