ROBESON/BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A Lumberton man was arrested following a high-speed chase near the Robeson County and Bladen County border Thursday morning.

According to officials, Dwione Terrell Baxley, 31, was charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest, resisting a public officer and driving without an operator's license.

Officials say an investigator was traveling westbound on NC 41 near the Robeson County and Bladen County line, when a black Chevrolet Impala passed him at a high rate of speed.

The investigator attempted to stop the Impala, and continued pursuing the vehicle into Robeson County.

Baxley eventually stopped the car, jumped out, and ran down Longs Road.

Baxley was apprehended in a soybean field and then told officers that he had just left court in Bladen County before the chase began.
