SUNNY HILLS - A Bay County man is facing multiple charges after attempting to elude a traffic enforcement detail by a Washington County deputy.
According to reports, Shane Raisback, 39, of Everette Avenue in Panama City ignored a deputy's emergency lights and siren when the deputy attempted to pull Raisback over for a broken tail light in the Sunny Hills area shortly after 2 a.m. on Feb. 18.
The deputy pursued Raisback for a short time before the suspect exited the vehicle to flee on foot. The deputy was able to catch up with Raisback and apprehend him without further incident.
Raisback is charged with fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement, driving while license suspended, and obstruction of justice without violence.
"Special details performed like this one are necessary to keep our communities safe and to let violators know that we are out there actively pursuing them,” said Washington County Sheriff Kevin Crews.
