DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

An Adel man faces multiple charges after leading Coffee County deputies on a high speed chase early Saturday before crashing his vehicle in Atkinson County.

A lookout was issued for 50-year-old James Fiveash around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, following a domestic dispute between him and his wife that occurred in Coffee County. His wife said had been drinking, was unlicensed, and had abandoned her in Douglas.

A vehicle matching the description of his was spotted traveling south on U.S. 441. When deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the driver fled, headed into Atkinson County at over 90 mph.

Fiveash wrecked on an embankment in Pearson, jumped out of the car and ran off, but he was caught quickly by Pearson police.

He remains in the Atkinson County Jail on charges of driving with a suspended license, leaving the scene of an accident, hit and run, DUI, and no insurance.

Multiple charges on Fiveash are pending in Coffee County including fleeing law enforcement and reckless driving.
