Get directions:  To here - From here

Two men were arrested Thursday after leading a Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputy on a chase on Lee Highway.

Lekell Byrd and Damico Lawrence, both 20, were both charged with burglary, evading arrest and two counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle.

The pair were seen in a Dodge Avenger that matched the description of a car seen at a burglary earlier in the morning at 4225 Shady Oaks Drive, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Janice Atkinson said in a statement.

Deputy George Delker tried to stop the vehicle, but the men accelerated and drove the Avenger through neighborhoods, Atkinson said.

On Lee Highway, the driver used the car to hit Delker’s vehicle, until eventually they were stopped at the St. Stephens Place intersection, she said.

Two fine young men. Good job "parents." At what point do we as a society realize these type canker sores can't be rehabilitated? As long as they can take a breath society is in danger. First, shave their heads with a weed-eater.
