HARRISON COUNTY -- Authorities have a man in custody who led them on a high-speed chase Thursday afternoon.
Biloxi police Capt. Bruce Johnson said Christopher David Brock, 35, of Saucier, sped past a police officer on Interstate 10 about 3:25 p.m. When the officer attempted to stop him, he accelerated and began passing drivers on the shoulder.
Johnson said the man headed north onto Mississippi 605 before eventually wrecking the 1991 Nissan 300ZX while attempting to turn onto Three Rivers Road from White Star Road.
After wrecking the car, Johnson said the man fled into the woods but was apprehended about 30 minutes later.
"We were fortunate that about 10 officers were leaving training so we had double the manpower we normally do, so we were able to set up a real good perimeter," he said. "We also had K-9s working so we utilized them.
"As one got tired, we put another one out."
Johnson said Brock faces a felony charge of eluding and several traffic-related charges.
Capt. Mike Wills said Brock was also found to be on probation through the state Department of Corrections and a warrant was issued for violation of probation.
Brock was held at the Harrison County jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.
Johnson said there was a woman passenger who did not flee when the car was wrecked. He said the car did not belong to Brock and was on loan to the woman.
