MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A man is custody after leading deputies on a short chase early Friday morning.

Bibb County deputies responded to Flash Foods on Pio Nono Avenue just after 1 a.m. after being told someone was stealing cases of beer.

Two hours later, deputies spotted a car matching the description of the one used in the theft and attempted to pull it over, but the driver didn’t stop.

Reese was arrested and charged with theft by shoplifting, felony fleeing and eluding, driving while unlicensed, affixing tag with intent to conceal vehicle identification, expired tag and open container.
