TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A convicted Florida felon was arrested after leading officers on a high speed chase through Tallahassee.

Chazdin Miller, 24, was arrested by the Tallahassee Police Department.

Officers were conducting proactive patrol to address residents complaints of criminal activity in the area of Sharer Road and North Monroe Street.

Officers tried to make a traffic stop on Miller's vehicle at 3:09 a.m. Thursday morning, but Miller refused to stop.

TPD said Miller drove away from the area at a high rate of speed and almost crashed into an officer. A brief pursuit of Miller by officers ensued and he crashed near Macon Community Park located at the corner of Grady Road and Henderson Road.

Miller then ran away from the vehicle but was quickly found and arrested by officers.

During the investigation of the incident, cocaine and a stolen .357 caliber, fully loaded firearm were found in Miller’s possession. The firearm had been reported stolen during a burglary in Tallahassee in 2018.

Miller, a Florida convicted felon, was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released for a minor injury sustained during the traffic crash.

Miller was eventually taken to the Leon County Detention Facility for processing.

He is being charged with:

  • Aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer
  • Flee/elude an officer with injury or damage
  • Possession of cocaine
  • Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Grand theft of a firearm
  • Resisting an officer without violence
  • Driving while license suspended or revoked
