Kinmundy Man In Custody After Leading Sheriff's Deputies on High Speed Chase
Justin Armstrong of Jones Road was arrested after his car crashed into a ditch near the Williams and Parrill Road intersection east of Alma. Deputies who had been following Armstrong from a distance reported he then gave up. He was not injured. Armstrong was arrested for alleged driving under the influence, aggravated fleeing or eluding, and speeding more than 40 miles an hour over the speed limit.
Deputies say Armstrong had initially gotten away from them when they attempted a stop on Route 37 south of Kinmundy. However, about ten minutes later they once again met up with Armstrong on the Martin Road in rural Alma. A 17 mile chase followed, with the 109 mile an hour speed limit clocked on the Brubaker Road.
