Man Pleads In High-Speed Chase

October 24, 2013

A Toccoa man who led authorities on a high-speed chase earlier this year receives probation.

Christopher Eugene Hatcher pleaded guilty to multiple charges including Cruelty to Children in the First Degree, Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Driving While License Suspended, and Speeding in Stephens County Superior Court last week.

Under the terms of the sentence, Hatcher received 20 years probation, with 180 days in a probation center.

Hatcher was charged and indicted in connection to a high-speed chase back in April, in which Hatcher led authorities from multiple agencies on a chase down Highway 17 during the early morning hours at speeds in excess of 125 miles per hour before being wrecked by authorities in order to stop the chase.

A child was allegedly in Hatcher’s vehicle during the chase, according to authorities.
