ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Three men have been arrested after multiple law enforcement agencies brought a chase to an end Wednesday afternoon, when the truck they were chasing crashed.

Joe Adkins, 19, Chase Hartfield, 17, and Jonathan Hand, 20, were booked into the Dougherty County Jail on aggravated assault and entering auto charges, according to staff at the DCJ.

Dougherty County Police said the chase began in the 4900 block of Old Dawson Road around 2 p.m.
