A Hattiesburg man led police on a lengthy pursuit Monday after attempting to evade Madison police on I-55. 

According to the Madison Police Department, at 12:45 p.m., an officer attempted to pull over a 2019 white Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by Corey J. Frierson, 34, for a traffic violation. The officer initiated the traffic stop in I-55 near mile marker 109.

Police say Frierson initially stopped his vehicle but ignored the officer’s commands before speeding off northbound.

The chase went through Yazoo County and into Holmes County with officers from multiple jurisdictions participating in the chase.

Frierson exited the interstate in Holmes County and ultimately struck an unoccupied vehicle on Highway 17 before pulling into a Marathon gas station and fleeing on foot. 

Frierson was quickly apprehended and there were no injuries reported. 

He has since been charged with careless driving, disorderly conduct/failure to comply, felony fleeing and possession of marijuana. He remains in custody at the Madison County Detention Center on no bond.
