Giles Chase Ends In Lawrence County

   A man who fled into Lawrence County in an effort to evade Giles County law enforcement agents was apprehended by local deputies Tuesday afternoon.

   Reports filed through the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department show that deputies joined the operation around 2:00 p.m. after being asked to provide assistance to Giles County deputies. They were asked to help search for a driver who had fled from Giles authorities on Weakley Creek Road.

   After joining the operation, local deputies were able to locate the 1988 Buick Park Avenue traveling southbound on Miller Lane, in the area of Gimlet Road. They quickly activated their emergency equipment, however they report that the driver refused to yield.

   After a time one deputy was able to move in front of the vehicle and force the driver to stop. When they approached the vehicle and ordered the driver to exit, they report that he repeatedly refused to do so.

   The driver, Stephen Juan Braly, 47 of 323 Woodring Street, Pulaski, was ultimately sprayed with an immobilizing spray so that he could be physically removed from the car.

Deputies pulled Braly from the vehicle, placed him on the ground and handcuffed him. Deputies report they used water to flush Braly’s eyes.

   Braly was transported to the Lawrence County Detention Center where warrants were signed, charging him with the crimes of evading arrest and driving on a suspended driver license. He was then transported to Pulaski without further incident.
