One man is facing numerous charges after leading Holmes County deputies on a chase while he was driving a four-wheeler.
According to reports, a deputy observed a white male riding a four-wheeler down Buddy Gilley Road in Thursday.
The four-wheeler crossed over to Beaver Dam Road, at which time the deputy attempted to stop the ATV.
The four-wheeler accelerated and failed to pull over, and a pursuit initiated. While traveling south on Beaver Dam, the driver turned around and looked at the deputy and refused to stop. As the suspect attempted to make a turn onto Truett Circle, the driver lost control and turned the four-wheeler over.
The driver, identified as William Thomas Martin, was taken into custody. Martin stated to the deputy that he did not have a driver’s license and advised he had an active child support warrant, as well as illegal narcotics in his pocket.
A search of his person revealed a glass smoking pipe containing methamphetamine along with a small plastic bag containing meth. Martin faces charges of fleeing and attempting to elude, driving while license suspended, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and the warrant for child support.
