Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller says the men asked to test-drive a Ford Mustang at a Lithia Springs dealership yesterday. Miller says one pulled a knife on the salesman who accompanied them and made him withdraw $100 from an ATM.
They allegedly taped up the salesman and dropped him off at a park & ride lot, but he managed to use his cell phone to call 911.
Officers chased the car west on I-20 at speeds of more than 100 mph before the crash at an exit.
