HILLSVILLE — A 32-year-old Austinville man faces illegal drug and traffic charges after he tried to elude a Carroll deputy during a traffic stop last Thursday, according to Sheriff Warren Manning.
The chase occurred as Sgt. Bobby Lyons was patrolling the area near U.S. 52 and Pleasant View Road. The deputy saw a motorcycle being operated in a reckless manner, according to a press release from the sheriff's office.
Lyons tried to stop the motorcycle for reckless driving, but it sped off, heading south on U.S. 52.
