A Duluth man was jailed in the early morning hours of New Year's Day after a chase that involved a Georgia State Patrol officer, according to records.

Timothy Jerome Carter of a Boggs Road address was booked into the Gwinnett Detention Center on Jan. 1, according to jail records. Charges included reckless driving, fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, speeding, and driving on the wrong side of the road.

A Georgia State Patrol officer spotted the suspect vehicle about 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 1 on Pleasant Hill Road traveling south, according to a state patrol spokesperson.

The suspect vehicle was traveling about 62 mph in a 45 mph zone, the spokesperson said. When the officer initiated a traffic stop, the motorist did not comply.

Eventually, a pursuit went through several streets, and ended in a cul de sac on Daisy Court, the spokesperson said. The suspect fled on foot, and eventually lied down and surrendered.
