Man flees from police over traffic violation

If you violate the traffic laws of Georgia, the typical response is to stop for the police when they pull you over. You'll likely end up with a ticket, but you retain the right to go to court and defend yourself.

Some people don't think through their actions, though. If you decide instead to flee from the police or to avoid paying tickets, you could end up in a more difficult and complicated situation. It's always better to follow officers' instructions. The last thing you want is to be fighting criminal charges as a result of mistakes made when police attempt to pull you over.

A man reportedly recently fled from police in Monroe. Authorities say that he was driving with a suspended license, which is a traffic violation.

Once the police tried to pull him over, the man crashed his vehicle at East Marable and North Broad. Then, authorities say that he fled on foot, attempting to escape sheriff's deputies. He ended up being caught in a yard. He was taken into custody, but it was only because one of the deputies suffered an injury in the chase.

If you are pulled over by police officers for any reason, it's a wise decision not to make your situation more complicated. The police don't want to spend time chasing you, and you could end up being charged with a crime for evading officers. Listen to what the officer has to say to you. You may only receive a ticket, which you can respond to with the help of your attorney.
