On Saturday, April 9th, just before 4 am, a deputy witnessed a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat swerving back and forth in its lane on GA 400 northbound. The deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle; however, when the deputy approached, the driver took off at a high rate of speed. The deputy pursued the car as it reached speeds of nearly 145mph.
