BAKER, Fla., Dec. 1, 2021—A man was arrested after a series of hit-and-run accidents in the Baker area earlier today.
There were no serious injuries during the early morning mayhem, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.
James Williams Sullivan, 57, from Campbellton, Fla., was charged with fleeing and eluding lights and sirens, resisting arrest without violence as well as aggravated battery around 7:15 a.m. today.
Sullivan initially refused to pull over for nearly two miles after deputies spotted his car eastbound on U.S. Highway 90 and attempted a traffic stop at the Shoal River Bridge.
A witness to some of the hit-and-run crashes contacted the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Highway Patrol with the suspect’s car description.
