Valdosta, Ga.-- According to Georgia State Patrol Troopers, officials turned on light and sirens in an attempt to pull over a gray Honda Accord on Monday, after it was seen traveling at 75 miles per hour, in a 55 mile per hour zone.

At that time Troopers report that the Honda sped up to 102 m.p.h.

The Honda continued to flee from officers, increasing speed to up to 120 m.p.h while breaking several traffic laws.

The Honda continued into Naylor, nearly rear-ending another vehicle at the intersection of GA 135 and GA 38 (US 84)

The vehicle continued to speed and drive erratically, quickly changing lanes, disregarding stop signs, and braking aggressively.

After side swiping officers in an attempt to avoid a P.I.T. maneuver, the Honda Accord crossed the median on GA 38 and stopped in the south ditch, where it became entrenched in the wet grass.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as 26 year old Thaddeus Marquise Robinson of Sanford, Florida and was taken into custody.

Mr. Robinson was transported to Lanier County Sheriff's Office and will be charged with multiple traffic violations including Driving on a Suspended License and Felony Fleeing and Attempting to Elude Law Enforcement.

No injuries were reported from law enforcement, citizens or suspect. No property damage was sustained other than the damage to the Accord and GSP patrol car.
