GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - New video has been released from a car chase in Marion County over the weekend, that turned scary very quickly. What started out as a possible battery call turned into a high-speed chase.

Body camera from a Marion County Sheriff's Deputy shows the moment a deputy told Brandon Buckholz he was being detained for a reported battery. Buckholz insisted no crime occurred then backed up and hit the deputy with his SUV before driving off.

The reports says, he led deputies on a high-speed chase forcing them to deploy stop sticks which deflated two of his tires. Buckholz who had a woman and two children inside with him continued driving leading deputies to use a pit maneuver, which stopped the vehicle. Buckholz took off on foot and ran through the woods and over a fence before being captured.

He is charged with multiple crimes including, child neglect, aggravated battery on an officer, and fleeing. Buckholz is currently in the Marion County Jail on a $101,000 bond.
