A man who fled the law after leading a deputy on a chase on Shellsford Road will serve 45 days in jail.The suspect, Jonathan M. Ramos, 23, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of evading arrest with a motor vehicle, simple possession of marijuana, and second-offense driving on a revoked license. He was ordered to serve 45 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence, perform 24 hours public service work, and pay $250 plus costs.He was arrested after his vehicle was seen swerving on Shellsford Road as he passed deputy Eddie Colwell.“I attempted to make a traffic stop but he took off at a high rate of speed,” Colwell said, noting he pursued the black Honda to the corner of Wesley Chapel and Highway 108.“Mr. Ramos jumped out of the vehicle and took off running,” Colwell recalled, noting he snatched the passenger who also tried to run.Colwell soon figured out why Ramos had failed to pull over. His license was revoked for a DUI he got in Warren County in 2011.
