Updated on Sept. 21, 2020 — Dylan Eugene Williams was formally charged on Sept. 18 with attempting to elude an officer and endangering another and obstructing an officer.
He posted a $10,000 bond and is expected back in court on Oct. 22.
In 2019, Williams pleaded guilty in Carter County for speeding 30 to 40 mph over the posted speed limit.
What was likely going to be a verbal warning for a traffic violation has now turned into a felony arrest for a 19-year-old following a high speed chase in Guthrie.
A Logan County deputy witness an illegal u-turn by a silver BMW at the intersection of Division St. and Industrial Road just before 10 a.m. on Thursday.
The deputy followed the BMW and activated the emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. However, the vehicle quickly speed off in the northbound lanes of Division St.
The vehicle recklessly was in and out of traffic before making a turn onto E. Springer St. Once on the city side street, the vehicle reached speeds up to 100 mph.
Due to safety concerns of the neighborhood and nearby school, the deputy called off the pursuit. Luckily, the deputy was able to capture the vehicle’s license plate information.
A short time later, deputies located the BMW at the residence that was identified with the tag number. The driver appeared to have attempted to hide the vehicle behind a barn, but was spotted by law enforcement.
The male, who did not have any outstanding warrants, was arrested for traffic violations and felony eluding.
His identity was not immediately released, but formal charges are expected to be handed down as early as Friday afternoon.
