Alabama law enforcement’s pursuit of a South Carolina man ended in northern Georgia after the suspect crashed into Georgia deputy patrol vehicles and they forced him to stop.

According to the Dade County, Georgia Sheriff’s Office (DCSO), Ronald D. Sever was chased in a minibus at speeds of about 90 mph on Interstate 59 North by officers from Fort Payne, Alabama, and deputies from DeKalb County, Alabama.

Dade County units waited at the state line, while Trenton, Georgia police units waited at mile marker 9 to deploy spike strips.

Deputies said Sever exited Interstate 59 at exit 4, where two more Dade County deputies were waiting, and headed west on Deer Head Cove Road.

According to DCSO, Sever deliberately hit multiple police vehicles.

He kept running away from the police to a gas station parking lot where they stopped his minivan with their patrol vehicles.

After Sever was taken into custody, officers discovered he had an active felony warrant with full extradition from Virginia Beach, Virginia.


The warrant was for a probation violation, with the original charges relating to producing child pornography, failing to comply with Virginia sex offender laws, and sexually assaulting two girls.

DCSO charged Sever with hit and run/attempted evasion, aggravated assault on a police officer, speeding, reckless driving, disobeying a stop sign, and driving with a suspended driver’s license.

He’s also being held on a Virginia Beach warrant.
