Dramatic dash cam video was released Tuesday after officials in Walton County took down a man in a stolen truck.
John Christopher Calhoun, 29, faces charges in connection with kidnapping an 81-year-old woman and locking her in the truck of her car for two days.
On Monday, Calhoun allegedly hit a man in the face with a lead pipe and stole his truck, leading authorities on a chase.
Maj. Damien Mercer walked Channel 2 Action News through the footage from the dash cam.
As Calhoun behind the wheel of the stolen pickup makes a desperate attempt to evade deputies, he reaches speeds over 90 miles an hour on the small country roads of Monroe.
“With whatever cost, he was willing to do whatever he had to do and that was evident in the video tapes,” Mercer said.
Suddenly, Calhoun turns off the road cutting through the parking lot of the Walton County Fire Department and onto a residential dead end street.
In a moment, it’s all over. Mercer says it’s a miracle no one was injured.
“All of our folks go home and as soon as the victims are healed, they’ll be back with their families and life goes on,” Mercer said. “The bad guy’s in jail and so you can’t get a more perfect outcome, so we’re all pleased.”
