Putnam deputies release name of man accused of wrecking stolen car during chase

We now know the name of a man arrested after police say he stole a car from a Hurricane car dealership and then led police on a chase that ended in a crash.

Putnam County deputies say Christopher Dale Davis, from Milton, stole a car from the lot of Walker Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, formerly Courts Chrysler Motors, Monday afternoon.

Deputies say Davis then led them on a chase through Hurricane to Winfield. He then crossed the Winfield Bridge and crashed the car into a utility pole at the bottom of Red House Hill.

Davis was not hurt.

He is charged with fleeing with reckless indifference, possession of a stolen vehicle, driving on a license revoked for DUI and felony destruction of property.
