Patrick Tyrone Thomas

A Colbert, Georgia man is behind bars after trying to elude deputies with the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office.

The man, identified as 29 year old Patrick Tyrone Thomas, was arrested after he fled from an Elbert County Sheriff’s Deputy who tried to initiate a traffic stop. The chase began on Mineral Springs Road, a foot chase followed once the vehicle had stopped.

Thomas was captured and charged with Fleeing/Attempting to Elude, Reckless Driving, Too Fast for Conditions, Failure to Report an Accident, Drive While License Suspended, and Obstructing Law Enforcement Officers.

Thomas was also served with an outstanding warrant, a parole hold, and two orders to incarcerate; which explains why Thomas attempted to flee from law enforcement.
