After stopping the vehicle he advised Johnson as to the reason why he stopped him. After the deputy ran a check on his information, dispatched advised him that the subject was wanted in Scott County and that the tag displayed came back as stolen out of Knoxville, TN.
With this knowledge the deputy again approached the vehicle with the intention of placing him under arrest, at which point Johnson informed the deputy that he could not go to jail. Johnson then put the vehicle in gear and pulled away. The deputy ran back to his vehicle and took off in pursuit of the fleeing vehicle.
