BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Booneville man faces charges after leading authorities on a high speed chase through parts of Prentiss and Itawamba County on Monday.

Sheriff Randy Tolar says Elvin Daren Farrar, 20, faces charges of felony fleeing and numerous traffic charges.

Farrar was riding a motorcycle and failed to stop for deputies who attempted to pull him over on Highway 371 near Marietta around 1:15 Monday afternoon.

The pursuit continued through Marietta, Kirkville, Houston, Ozark and Mantachie.

The chase ended on Highway 371 and Fawn Grove Road after Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dickinson used a pickup truck and garbage trailer to block the roadway.

Farrar remains in jail on a $5,000 bond.
