During the chase, officials say Webb tried to run into vehicles driven by Sheriff Wright and another deputy.  Another sheriff’s office vehicle was damaged while trying to stop Webb.

Webb was able to get away until he was located later at the Brookwood Inn.

No injuries were reported as a result of the chase.
