ENOCHVILLE - A Rowan County deputy was in a high speed chase early Thursday morning after trying to pull over a man for driving through a stop sign.
According to the sheriff's office, the deputy saw Brandon Stamper drive through the stop sign at Eagle Street and Spring Garden Avenue around 12:30 a.m.
The deputy tried to pull Stamper over, but Stamper began to speed away on Eagle Street, the sheriff's office said.
After driving through another stop sign at Eagle Street and North Enochville Avenue, Stamper exceeded 100 miles per hour while trying to elude the deputy, according to the sheriff's office.
Stamper eventually slowed down on Linn Street near Enochville Elementary School and threw something out of the passenger window.
He told the deputy it was a pack of cigarettes with marijuana, but changed his statement and said he threw a can of YooHoo.
A police K9 was able to find the YooHoo can along the road on Linn Street between 2nd Street and North Enochville Avenue.
Stamper was charged with felony Flee/Elude Arrest with Motor Vehicle, misdemeanor Drug Paraphernalia, Failure to Stop for Stop Sign, Without Having Financial Responsibility and Without Having Registered Vehicle with DMV.
