JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina sheriff’s office has filed charges against a man who they say led deputies on a chase down the wrong side of the highway through several counties.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets 20-year-old Trevor Tyrode Wallace of Summerville, South Carolina, was arrested on multiple charges, including assault with a deadly weapon on a government official.

Authorities say deputies received a call early Sunday about a car speeding on the wrong side of the road. At one point, officials said, the driver slowed down and tried to hit an Onslow County deputy’s cruiser. Sheriff’s deputies in Carteret County, picked up the chase and deployed stop sticks to end the pursuit.
