    When the deputy who stopped and approached the vehicle on foot, the man behind the wheel drove off, according to the sheriff's department.

    The driver headed west on I-30 to the Westmoreland Road exit, just east of Cockrell Hill, and proceeded to elude police on side streets, the sheriff's department confirmed for NBC 5.
