Officers say during the stop, Russ attempted to call his mom before driving off. He's being held on multiple charges including fleeing and attempting to elude, obstruction, reckless driving, and driving on a suspended license..

During the stop police say Russ tried to call his mom, and when the officer asked him to step out of the car, he sped off.

They were looking for Russ in the Ambrose, Nicholls, and West Green areas of Coffee County.
