Just past 10 pm last Wednesday night, an older model red Chevy pickup truck led deputies on a late night chase.
Deputy Adam Honsinger was behind the truck on Priscella Drive when he noticed the driver began weaving all over the road. Honsinger attempted to pull over the vehicle but instead of adhering to the blue lights, the driver of the vehicle sped through the neighborhood, trying to loose the deputy.
Honsinger radioed that he had a vehicle that refused to stop and requested back up.
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Frankie Honeycutt, led deputies on a chase from Priscella Circle to Gaitlin Road, onto Ridge Road and then onto Cherokee before blowing out his engine on Wolfe Road.
When he attempted to turn, Honeycutt spun out in gravel, before the vehicle made a loud POP, produced a cloud of smoke and blew out the engine.
The fugitive then sprang from the vehicle and continued to flee, running across Wolfe Road and cutting through the yard of a home on the corner of Cherokee.
Honeycutt managed to escape and the passenger of the vehicle told deputies that Honeycutt had just gotten out of prison days before.
The passenger, Russell Jordan, was arrested on scene for public drunk. Jordan is also familiar with local law enforcement, being arrested 14 times since 1998.
Honeycutt was in Parchman for violating his probation in 2008 and the sale of cocaine in 2007.
As of press time Wednesday evening, a warrant had been issued for Honeycutt’s arrest.
