ROSELAND, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities said a man accused of driving wildly on the road and then refusing to stop when they tried to pull him over was arrested after a short chase.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office said Michael Carter, 48, of Amite was booked into the parish prison Saturday.

He is charged with resisting arrest by flight, possession of CDS II and driving with a suspended license.

Sheriff Daniel Edwards reported deputies spotted a grey Ford truck pulling what looked like a camper on Hayden Lane in Roseland.

They said the truck was moving erratically on the roadway.

They added when they tried to pull over the pickup the driver got more aggressive and headed toward their patrol unit.

TPSO said after a quick pursuit, Carter stopped the truck at the end of Perry Lane and he was arrested.

Investigators said they found about a handful worth of illegal narcotics in his pocket.

There was no bond information released.
