DURHAM, N.C. — A man who led authorities through a high-speed chase in Durham and Wake County Monday faces a long list of charges.
The chase ended just before 5 p.m. Monday at Chapel Hill Road and House Avenue, south of Duke's campus. State troopers and sheriff's deputies arrested James Lloyd, 41.
Officials said Lloyd was approached by officers who noticed the driver side door of his car open and his leg hanging out of the car along south Roxboro Road.
Lloyd, who stepped out of the vehicle, told officers his leg was cramping. When he was asked by officers to turn off the ignition, they said Lloyd got back in the car and took off.
Officials said Lloyd, who was driving a blue Acura, started the chase from south Roxboro Road and headed north to 15-501. The Highway Patrol got involved when Lloyd reached the Durham County line.
Lloyd was followed at high speeds through Wake County and back to Durham before being taken into custody.
Authorities said a sheriff's deputy's car, along with several other cars, were damaged as a result of the chase. No injuries have been reported.
