A 28-year-old man who was supposed to be on house arrest is now at the Martin County Jail.

Christopher Demond Williams was supposed to be at his residence serving "at home confinement" for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the Martin County Sheriff's Office said. However, he was spotted driving around aimlessly with no apparent destination.

When Special Investigations detectives tried to pull him over, Williams sped off, according to the sheriff's office. After a short chase, detectives were able to safely maneuver William’s vehicle off the road, but it didn’t end there.

Willaims and his 28-year-old female passenger got out of the car and fled on foot, the sheriff's office said. After a short pursuit, they were caught and taken into custody.

Detectives say Williams had a suspended driver's license in addition to being on house arrest.

Williams was charged with fleeing and eluding, according to the sheriff's office. His female passenger was also charged with resisting arrest. Detectives also noticed that she was in possession of more than $8,000 in cash and several cell phones.

Both were taken to the Martin County Jail.
