SOUTH FORSYTH – Motorists in south Forsyth may have seen a slow-speed police chase Thursday afternoon that ended in the arrest of a wanted man.
Christopher Mays, 38, failed to stop for deputies on Thursday, Jan. 5 on Brookwood Road at McGinnis Ferry Road at the Fulton-Forsyth county line about 2:30 p.m., according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
Mays reportedly had fled from deputies near Johns Creek, which borders Forsyth County, causing Alpharetta deputies to issue a lookout.
Rainwater said Mays continued driving onto Mathis Airport Road with his flashers on about 30 miles per hour before jumping a curb onto Old Atlanta Road.
Once other deputies arrived to the moving scene, five patrol cars boxed him in to force him to stop.
Mays was detained without struggle once he pulled over, Rainwater said.
“At no point did he go too fast, so that’s the reason we could box him in” without causing injury to Mays or the deputies.
Mays was transported to the Forsyth County Jail Thursday afternoon. Once he posts bond, Alpharetta will detain him on their warrants, and he will be transported to their jail.
