OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - A Gulfport man who ran from police after a car chase Saturday night has turned himself in.

Brad Lee Smiley, 40, of Gulfport turned himself into the Ocean Springs Police Department Monday. He's charged with felony eluding and was released on a $2,500 bond.

Police tell WLOX that the incident involving Smiley happened late Saturday night when he fled from a Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy near the intersection of MS Highway 57 and U.S. Highway 90.

Police say Smiley drove his 1998 Ford Explorer west on Highway 90 in Ocean Springs, then north on Highway 609, continuing west on Interstate 10.

Biloxi Police eventually stopped the Explorer with tire deflation devices near mile marker 44. That's when the driver jumped out and ran into the woods north of the interstate.

Investigators at the scene soon learned that Smiley was the driver of the vehicle. Two days later, Smiley turned himself into the Ocean Springs Police Department.
