AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) - Monroe County Sheriff, Kevin Crook, held an arraignment Friday for a man who refused to stop at a checkpoint in October.
Sheriff Crook said 30- year-old Eric Patton drove through a grass median near the River Bridge in Aberdeen and onto Highway 45.
He said Patton was speeding on the opposite side into oncoming traffic and ran several people off the road.
The sheriff said before deputies were able to catch up to Patton, he hit another car, which killed 22-year-old Marqueze Lawston.
He said the driver of the vehicle Lawston was riding remains hospitalized.
Law enforcement were able to track Patton in Louisiana. His bond is set for a million dollars.
Sheriff Crook said right now he is charged with Manslaughter but there are more charges to come.
