A Savannah man is facing a long list of charges following a police pursuit that began in Polk County and ended in Floyd County Wednesday morning.
According to a story on the Polk.Today website, Polk County Police Assistant Chief Kiki Evans said that 22-year old Derrick Laron Rambert stole a pickup truck that had been left unoccupied to warm up around 5:30 a.m. in Rockmart.
The truck was spotted heading toward Cedartown and the pursuit began.
Authorities deployed spike strips and Rambert lost a tire but continued on Highway 27 and into Floyd County.
He made it all the way into Rome before officers finally were able to stop him and take him into custody.
