A driver waving a machete at a deputy prompted a pursuit in Johnston County Monday afternoon.
Around 1:20 p.m., a deputy attempted to stop 58-year-old Charles Terry Poole for driving without a valid driver's license.
Authorities said Poole refused to stop and began to wave a machete out the window of his car while he was driving.
While deputies were pursuing Poole, officials said he almost struck two school buses head on.
Deputies used a Pursuit Intervention Technique to end the chase.
The chase ended near the CVS Pharmacy on Highway 42.
At the end of the chase, a struggle between Poole, deputies and a sheriff K9 ensued.
Poole and a deputy were transported to WakeMed with non-life-threatening injuries.
