Police say when the officers attempted to stop the car, the driver tried to get away from police.

Durham was committed to JTVCC on $81,800 cash bond for the following charges: possession of a firearm by person prohibited, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, receiving stolen firearm, resisting arrest, DUI, possession of firearm during commission of felony, multiple traffic charges.
