Suspect Leads Police On Brief Chase

Around 8:30 PM Friday, members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s ACE Team were on patrol in the area of Highway 111 South near Goldsboro when a vehicle sped by doing approximately 100 mph in the 55 mph zone. Also the suspect vehicle was not burning its headlamps.  The driver did not immediately stop and deputies gave chase.  Once the driver did stop for law enforcement, he refused to exit the vehicle or peacefully surrender.  The driver, 23-year-old Tieyah R. Rouse of Goldsboro was eventually taken into custody after a brief struggle.  Deputies also allegedly noticed the distinct smell of alcohol on Rouse’s breath.  Rouse faces charges including Felony Flee to Elude, Reckless Driving to Endanger, and Driving While Impaired.  Pursuant to North Carolina’s “Run-and-Done” law, the vehicle operated by the Rouse was seized.  He was held on a $7,500 secured bond.
