Greensboro man arrested after chase with state trooper
GREENSBORO, N.C. – A Greensboro man was arrested Friday and faces multiple charges after authorities said he led a trooper on a car chase.
Christian Alexander Bryant, 20, is accused of holding a family member against their will and presumably assaulted a person and committing theft before the chase began.
The chase started on West Friendly Avenue near Interstate 73 in Greensboro on Friday after the suspect would not pull over for a speeding violation.
The suspect, in a black BMW, was allegedly going 65 in a 40 mph zone and sped off after a trooper tried to pull him over.
The trooper tried to stop the fleeing car by using a precision immobilization technique, also known as a PIT maneuver, according to authorities.
The driver stopped the BMW on Fleming Road south of Old Oak Ridge Road after the trooper’s attempt to PIT the BMW.
Trooper Knox said the suspect was taken to the Guilford County Jail in Greensboro and will be charged with felony speed to elude, in addition to other traffic offenses.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
