An officer from the Barrow County Sheriffs office was conducting a business check near Patrick Industrial Park Jan.
9 when he noticed an older model truck drive into the business center and begin circling different buildings.
The officer noticed two white males in the cab and both were not wearing seat belts.
There had been a high number of recent thefts in that particular business park so because of this and the fact the men were not wearing seat belts the officer initiated a traffic stop, but before he could radio in the truck began driving away at a high rate of speed.
The driver, later identified as Matt McCallister, began traveling down Patrick Industrial Drive and turned onto Kilcrease Road ignoring a stop sign.
The officer relayed information to dispatch that he was in pursuit of the vehicle and that the driver was weaving into oncoming traffic while traveling down Kennedy Sells Road.
