Person accused of running from Clermont traffic stop now in custody

A person who fled from a Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputy during an attempted traffic stop was taken into custody Sunday, Dec. 16, sheriff’s 1st Lt. Chris Dale said.

He had no other immediate details.

“We will probably be able to get something more detailed out once all the reports come in,” Dale said.

The pursuit began after the driver ran a stop sign at 3:17 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.

Dale said the driver “ditched the car shortly after” and was on the run near Holly Springs Road and Skitts Mountain Road in Clermont.

A K-9 unit was used to track the driver, and Georgia State Patrol assisted with troopers on the ground and a unit in the air.

About 6 p.m., the ground units called off the search, said.
