DADE COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia State Patrol says an Alabama teenager faces several charges after leading police on a chase that ended Sunday afternoon in Dade County.

According to reports, it all started around 1 pm on Sunday when police in Henagar, Alabama tried to stop the suspect for driving on the wrong side of the road on Alabama Highway 75. The GSP says they wouldn’t stop, and officers gave chase, heading into Georgia on Highway 301.

Officials say when the suspect came to the intersection of Georgia 136 and Main Street in Trenton he struck a Trenton Police Department unit causing the black Nissan 370ZX the suspect was driving to rotate out of control, eventually stopping.

Two other officers struck the suspect’s car at the intersection, disabling the vehicle and allowing officers to take the offender into custody.

Authorities say 18-year-old Fredrick Alexander Baugh of Scottsboro was arrested on the scene. The reason why he fled from officers in Henagar is unknown.

Police booked Baugh in the Dade County Jail. He now faces at least 15 charges including: No Proof of Insurance, Passing in a No Passing Zone, Failure to Obey Traffic Control Devices, Passing on a Hillcrest or in a Curve, Passing within 200ft. of Oncoming Traffic, Fleeing and Attempting to Elude, Improper Tag Display, Speeding in Excess of Maximum Limits, DUI/Marijuana or Controlled Substance, Failure to Maintain Lane, Following too Closely, Hit and Run/Leaving Scene of an Accident, Reckless Driving, Driving without a License on Person, and Driving on the Wrong Side of Roadway,
