A news release from the Troup County Sheriff's Office in Georgia says that a lieutenant ran the registration of a 2015 Toyota Camry and found it was wanted out of Connecticut, so he tried to stop the driver and Bigaud led police on a high-speed chase.

Authorities took Bigaud into custody and charged him with fleeing/attempting to elude and fugitive for justice.

Bigaud was held on a $1.5 million bond and is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
