A reckless driver was arrested on multiple charges after a chase through Calhoun and Jackson counties last Saturday night and the subsequent discovery of “law enforcement-related equipment” in the vehicle he was driving and on his person, according to a press release from the Florida Highway Patrol.

The agency reports that Rayburn R. Henderson was seen “driving recklessly through Blountstown” in a green Kia at approximately 1:45 p.m. that day, and that a trooper tried to pull him over on State Road 71 in Calhoun County.

Officials say Henderson kept driving and that the pursuit continued on SR 71 and into Jackson County, where Henderson was taken into custody. During the arrest, authorities allege, Henderson “was found to have law enforcement related equipment in the vehicle and on his person.” The release gave no specific information about those items.

Henderson, 55, of Blountstown, was charged with felony counts of fleeing/attempting to elude and false impersonation of a law enforcement officer, and misdemeanor counts of obstruction, reckless driving and a concealed weapon misdemeanor.
