A traffic stop Friday night quickly turned dangerous when an armed man fled from deputies, according to the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office. He struck three deputies, ran, and tried crossing a chain link fence before deputies caught him, and in spite of use of a Taser, deputies still had to fight the suspect to take him into custody, Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Monday. Tevin Myles, 22, of Lanier Drive, was later found to have a fully loaded gun as well as an assortment of illegal drugs, Anderson said.
