Chase Ends With Suspect Tazed

A police chase over the weekend that started in Greenville ended in Martin County with a man being tazed.

The Pitt County Highway Patrol says the chase started Friday before midnight.

John Williamgham -- a wanted armed robbery suspect, was spotted by a convenience store clerk. When police got there -- they chased him on Highway 11 at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour for 30 minutes.

The Highway Patrol used stop sticks to try to get the car to stop. But that didn't stop Williamgham. Troopers say law enforcement had to draw their guns on the 42 year-old before he was finally tazed and taken into custody.

Williamgham now faces felony charges.
