Car dealership employee arrested after high-speed chase

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — Officials say a car dealership employee in the Atlanta area has been arrested and fired after he led Johns Creek police on a high-speed chase in a dealership's Mercedes-Benz car.

News outlets report that Frederick Spry was hired a few months ago to drive cars between dealerships, but later lost his driver's license. Police say that was the reason Spry didn't stop when a Johns Creek officer tried to pull him over June 16.

The officer stopped chasing him when speeds exceeded 100 mph, but Capt. Chris Byers says investigators were able to track the car down to Roswell Mitsubishi, where Spry worked.

Spry is charged with fleeing and eluding police, reckless driving, speeding and driving without a license. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
