Brown attempted a traffic stop, but the "driver sped north" on the highway, according to the Monroe County Reporter.

Amid reports that marijuana was found in the car, can confirm that Carswell was charged with one count of fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, one count of DUI — less safe — drugs, one count of following too closely, one count of failure to maintain lane and one count of speeding in excess of maximum limits.
