HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An attempted traffic stop turned into a vehicle chase for a Harrison County Sheriff's deputy Friday afternoon. 

Lt. Coley Judy said the chase started when a driver took off from a traffic stop in the area of Desoto Park Rd. and Old Hwy. 49.

Judy said the chase went on for a couple miles before the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a tree. Sheriff Troy Peterson said the deputy involved in the chase held the suspects at gunpoint until backup arrived.

Peterson said there were three people in the car, all juveniles. They were charged with marijuana possession and traffic violations and released to their parents.
