STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A Gulfport man is recovering in a Stone County hospital Monday night after authorities said he was behind the wheel of high speed chase on Highway 49 in Stone County.

According to Captain Kevin Sharpe with the Stone County Sheriff's office, around 7 p.m. deputies attempted to stop 26-year- old James Louis Harness III because the head lights to his 2006 Toyota Corolla were off.

Captain Sharpe said Harness kept driving evening after deputies turned on their blue lights and shot at his tires. Sharpe said after almost running over two deputies outside of their vehicles, Harness headed south into Harrison County where Harrison County sheriff's deputies, Mississippi Highway Patrol and Gulfport police assisted.

Ultimately spike strips were used at Adams Road and Highway 49 to stop Harness' vehicle in Saucier. Once his vehicle came to a stop a Harrison County K-9 was used to help arrest Harness.

Sharpe said Harness was bit on his left arm and taken to Stone County hospital for treatment.

Following his time in the hospital he'll be transported to Stone County jail for charges of aggravated assault, wreckless driving, and resisting arrest.
He also faces other charges in Harrison County.
