According to the State Police, Montgomery County Deputies attempted to stop McCartney in a pickup truck at 1:40 p.m. on Monday for suspicious activity and reckless driving. McCartney, however, allegedly refused to stop and a pursuit ensued.

ISP District 18 Troopers joined the chase due to the suspect's reckless and erratic driving.
