The chase for a 23 year old Halifax man ended when the man, Nathaniel Tyrone Terry, ended the chase at his home on Pine Trail.

Terry led officers along River Road, going at speeds sometimes of 90 to 100 mph.  He turned off onto Old Grubby Road, slowing and then accelerating.  He then turned off onto Mountain Road and veered off, stopping at Pine Trail.

Officers apprehended him there, charging him with feloniously eluding police and driving on a suspended licensed.  He is being held in the Blue Ridge Regional Jail with no bond.
