MARSHALL CO., Ala. (WHNT) — A Huntsville man is arrested after leading officers on a high-speed chase through Marshall County.

Around 11 o’clock Sunday night Marshall County deputies say they saw a car driving on the wrong side of U.S. Highway 431 in the Claysville area.

When deputies stopped the car they say the driver, 27-year-old Chandon Marquis Mitchell, took off again.

Deputies say Mitchell drove from Claysville to Boaz, and then through Guntersville.

They say Mitchell drove through downtown Guntersville on the wrong side of U.S. Highway 431.

They say the chase ended when Mitchell lost control of his car at the intersection of Gunter Avenue and Ringold Street. Deputies say Mitchell hit a curb, trees and part of a Wells Fargo bank property before flipping his car.

Mitchell was checked on the scene for injuries and then arrested and taken to the Marshall County Jail.

He is charged with Attempt to Elude, Reckless Endangerment, Driving with Suspended License, Driving on the Wrong side of the road, and Driving Under the Influence.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Guntersville, Albertville, and Boaz Police Departments.

    Did you not know that he is exempt from the law? (tongue-in-cheek) Did his mama, and the one standing in the Pulpit not tell him so?

    LOL. What?…Rules?…Laws? A lot of people think they are exempt. They must have a special ID.
