Deputies chased him into Harnett County and then stopped their pursuit.

It was picked up by other agencies and continued onto Interstate 40 and then onto Highway 42 into Clayton. The Clayton police chief said that's where he went the wrong way down Highway 70 headed directly toward officers, barely missing one.

It eventually ended in the Chastain neighborhood in east Raleigh.

Witnesses said they saw Raleigh police running through yards looking for the man.

"They asked me if I knew anything about the car that was sitting out front or if I had seen it or seen anyone get out of that car," one woman who lives in the area told ABC11. "I told them no I hadn't because I was upstairs."

Police are still searching for the man.
