Jason Dewayne Law

A Red Boiling Springs man was arrested after allegedly reaching speeds of 120 miles per hour while evading officers in a stolen vehicle.

Jason Law Jr., 24, faces multiple charges following the incident.

According to the arrest report, Macon County Sheriff's Office deputy Josh Meador was patrolling the Galen Road area of Lafayette when he observed a Pontiac matching the description of a stolen vehicle. He also identified the driver as Law.

After Meador initiated emergency equipment in an attempt to conduct a traffic stop, Law allegedly accelerated up to 120 miles per hour to evade him.

The report also states that Law passed a vehicle in a no-passing zone, failed to stop at multiple intersections and swerved the vehicle at Lafayette Police Department officer Stacy Woodard's vehicle in an attempt to evade him.

Meador discontinued the pursuit shortly afterward due to public safety concerns. He then ran Law's license through dispatch and discovered it was revoked out of Macon County due to the theft of a vehicle.

Law was charged with evading arrest, aggravated assault, driving on a revoked or suspended license, reckless driving, improper passing, driving to the left of the center line, failure to stop for a signal, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of theft of property and with a violation of probation.

His bond was set at $66,000, and his court date was slated for Feb. 13.
