Man Tased After Police Chase

A man had to be tased after police say he led them on a chase down a busy Pitt County highway this afternoon.

Troopers spotted Mike Williams of Stokes driving down the wrong side of Brighton Boulevard in Greenville. They tried to stop him and that's when his pickup truck ran into the front of trooper's cruiser. They chased the man down Highway 43 and onto Highway 264. During the chase troopers say Williams used his turn signals along with way. They say the man got off onto Highway 11. That's when he stopped and a deputy sheriff tased him after they say he failed to comply with authorities.

Williams was charged with driving the wrong way, failure to stop, along with resist delay and obstruct. Troopers say Williams told them he didn't know anyone was chasing him.
