Sheriff: K-9 puts the bite on man who led high-speed chase across 4 Coast cities

A man who fled a traffic stop in Long Beach was later apprehended by a Harrison County K-9 deputy in D'Iberville, after leading authorities on a high-speed chase that spanned four Coast cities, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said in a release.

Peterson said deputies stopped Corey Adam Harris, 28, of Pearl, on suspicion of careless driving about 9:45 a.m. Monday on County Farm Road near Hayes Road in Long Beach.

As police attempted to identify Harris, Peterson said, he drove away. Deputies followed him to Interstate 10 and pursued him as he sped eastbound, but lost sight of him in D'Iberville.

D'Iberville police spotted Harris, Peterson said, but he fled again.

Peterson said Harris stopped his car at Rolling Hills Trailer Park, got out and ran, but soon after he was apprehended by a K-9 deputy.

He was taken to Memorial Hospital at Gulfport for a dog bite and was later released to authorities.

He is held at the Harrison County jail on a charge of felony evasion. Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner set his bond at $20,000.
