A man led a Bulloch County sheriff's deputy on a brief vehicle chase, which ended when he drove into a ditch, the sheriff's office said.

It happened Wednesday, when Deputy Randall Norman, of the Sheriff's Targeted Enforcement Patrol, or STEP, unit tried to stop a vehicle on U.S. Highway 301 North for a traffic violation, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Friday.

Tyrell Guthrie, 25, of Waynesboro Highway in Sylvania, was arrested after he tried to run from the vehicle but was stunned with a Taser by Norman, Anderson said.

The chase began on Highway 301, and continued when the vehicle turned onto Clito Road and then onto T.H. Lee Road before it ended up in a ditch. The driver, later identified as Guthrie, tried to run away but was stunned by Norman's Taser, Anderson said.

Guthrie was taken to the Bulloch County Jail and charged with a seat belt violation, driving with a suspended license, obstruction, and fleeting and attempting to elude.

No one was injured during the chase, Anderson said.
