JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - A man from Greenwood, Florida is behind bars after leading deputies in Jackson County on a high-speed chase.

It all started just before 10 p.m. Friday. A deputy noticed a truck speeding near the intersection of HWY 71 and HWY 2. The deputy found out the truck also had an expired vehicle registration.

The deputy tried to pull over the driver, 21-year-old Danny Hall, but he refused to stop. Several units set up a roadblock near HWY 162 and HWY 167, but again, Hall sped off after allegedly yelling profanities at the officers.

Even spike strips deflating his tires didn't stop Hall. He finally lost control after swerving into a patrol car just west of Cherry Court in Jacob City.

Hall was treated at the hospital for minor injuries before being booked into the Jackson County correctional Facility, where he awaits his first court appearance.
