A Florida man is behind bars after running from deputies at speeds of 100 mph, a license that’s been revoked since 2018, and trafficking meth.

According to investigators, on Thursday at approximately 1:30 p.m. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigators were patrolling the Graceville area when they saw a man, later identified as Tanner Allen Cauley, not wearing a seatbelt while driving.

When they attempted to make a traffic stop, Cauley fled, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles per hour.

The pursuit ended when a deputy successfully deployed stop sticks, deflating two of Cauley’s tires. The vehicle caught fire, and Cauley fled about 50 yards on foot, and was then arrested.

Investigators located more than 13 grams of the prescription medication Alprazolam, a loaded 9 mm handgun, and 9.93 grams of methamphetamine in Cauley’s backpack.
