By Derreck Booth Editor
GAINESVILLE - Authorities in Hall County got their man Friday afternoon following a short chase involving a stolen vehicle.
According to Hall County Sheriff's Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks, a deputy tried to stop a stolen vehicle being driven by 25-year-old Brian Joseph Brewner of Flowery Branch in the area of Thurman Tanner Parkway and Plainview Road.
Deputies called off the vehicle chase after Brewner ran an Oakwood Police Officer off the road. There was no crash involved, according to Wilbanks.
Wilbanks said the suspect fled on foot and was eventually tracked by a dog to a storage building and arrested.
First reports of the chase came around 2 p.m., and Wilbanks said Brewner was taken into custody roughly an hour later.
