Suspect Flees Traffic Stop, Crashes Vehicle Before Arrest

On Thursday, a Wayne County Sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle near the intersection of N.C. Highway 581 and Pinkney Road for a motor vehicle violation. During the investigation, it was discovered the driver, 28-year-old Donald Mayo, had two outstanding warrants out of Wilson County for Larceny and Probation Violation, both felonies. When the deputy attempted to take Mayo into custody for the outstanding warrants, Mayo fled the scene in his vehicle and shortly after crashed his vehicle. Following the crash, Mayo fled into a wooded area at the corner of Union Grove Church Road and N.C. Hwy 581 North. While deputies were searching for Mayo, Wayne County Dispatch received a call from a citizen who advised that a male matching the description of Mayo had just left a residence on Union Grove Church Road. Deputies responded to the area and encountered Mayo. Mayo was immediately taken into custody. Mayo was processed on charges including Flee to Elude Arrest.  His bond was set a $30,000 for the new charges and he was given No Bond on the Probation Violation out of Wilson County.
