DEPUTIES: Pamlico County man hits patrol car during high-speed chase

PAMLICO COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - A Pamlico County man is being held on a $1 million bond after deputies say he hit a patrol car and another vehicle during a high-speed chase on Wednesday.

Antonio Stilley, 39, of Oriental is facing numerous felony charges including two counts of assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer, flee and elude, and three counts of sell schedule I controlled substances.

Pamlico County deputies say they tried to stop Stilley's vehicle on Highway 55 in Reelsboro.

During the chase, deputies say the man swerved at one of their cruisers several times before hitting the deputy's vehicle on the passenger side while driving at approximately 70 miles per hour.

They say Stilley hit a second vehicle on Highway 55 before losing control and crashing into a ditch.

Deputies say over the past several weeks, investigators had made several controlled heroin buys from Stilley using an undercover officer.
