A man will serve a couple of weeks behind bars after he led lawmen on a chase through Mt. Leo after they tried to arrest him on an outstanding warrant.The man, Corey Eugene Pleasant, 42, was ordered by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to serve 15 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence and pay $50 plus costs for reckless endangerment, evading arrest and driving on a revoked license.His jail time comes after deputies tried to detain him when he was spotted in a vehicle near the intersection of Beersheba Highway and Highway 8. A deputy approached the stationary vehicle and was about arrest him but the suspect caught a glimpse of the lawman.“He turned and saw me and put the vehicle in gear and proceeded to drive through the parking lot of the gas station where customers were standing,” explained Sheriff’s Sgt. Newman Ford.
