A 30-year-old Seymour man was arrested on Saturday after a pursuit by Jackson County Sheriff’s Deputies.

On Saturday at approximately 8:43 AM Reserve Deputy Scott Davis attempted to stop a 2004 grey GMC Envoy for speeding on County Road 700 East just south of County Road 800 North.

The vehicle would not stop for Davis’ emergency lights. The driver then turned and continued westbound on County Road 800 North.

Davis then activated his siren along with the emergency lights but the driver of the vehicle still refused stop. The vehicle continued westbound on County Road 800 North until it finally stopped just east of County Road 575 East.


Davis was assisted by Reserve Deputy James Murphy and Deputy Rob Henley, both of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
