An officer driving his police car lost control while trying to capture 21-year-old Jarvis Owens

Police say Owens took off rather than face a routine traffic stop.

When the officer lost control of his car, it flipped over into a ditch off Peacock Road.

The officer was not injured, but Owens did escape. Owens is wanted on several charges in Columbus County.
