MACON, Ga. -- A man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after fleeing from Monroe County deputies into Bibb County then crashing into another car.

Sgt. Lawson Bittick with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said that Jarvis Mack, 28, will face charges of felony fleeing along with various traffic violations as a result of the chase and accident.

Bittick said Monroe deputies attempted to stop Mack in a black SUV on Interstate 75 southbound just after 1 p.m. for weaving in and out of traffic near mile marker 191. Instead of pulling over, Mack reportedly sped up to 100 to 115 m.p.h.

Monroe deputies requested assistance from Bibb County deputies as Mack drove onto Interstate 475, according to Lt. Randy Gonzalez with the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

Mack got off the interstate onto Zebulon Rd. then to Forsyth Rd. He then drove onto Napier Ave. toward oncoming traffic and struck a red Ford Mustang just before Fairmont Ave, according to Gonzalez.

Mack led deputies on a short foot race before he was apprehended. EMS checked him out on scene and then he was taken to the Monroe County Jail, Bittick said.

A female driver of the Mustang was taken to Navicent Health. Cpl. Michael Burns with the Georgia State Patrol said her injuries were not serious.

Gonzalez said Mack sideswiped another car during the chase.

Bittick said Mack has outstanding warrants out of Bibb County for a probation violation of an aggravated assault.

The Georgia State Patrol is working the accident.
