Deputies attempted to pull over a reckless driver on Moores Mill Road in Piedmont Wednesday night around 8:30pm.

Sergeant J.T. Foster said the driver, in a Nissan, would not stop and a chase ensued.  After using tire deflation devices, the driver wrecked off of Ivy Circle. 

With all four tires flat, the driver then backed up into a patrol car.  When they would not exit the vehicle, Deputies approached to remove the driver.

According to Sgt. Foster, at that time the driver reached for a gun in the passenger side of the car.  An Anderson County K-9 Deputy was used to detain the driver.

The driver was arrested.  Deputies are investigating and all charges are pending at this time.
