AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- An Augusta County Sheriff’s Office deputy is facing charges in Albemarle County connected with a police chase in September.

According to a release, the chase started in Augusta County around 3:30 a.m. Sept. 29 when a deputy on patrol on Three Notched Mountain Highway spotted a vehicle, a black Infiniti, that had allegedly been involved in several law enforcement pursuits in multiple jurisdictions.

The deputy ran the registration of the vehicle in order to try to confirm this suspicion, and the system returned information that the tags belonged to a different type of vehicle.

The deputy then attempted to pull the Infiniti over, but the vehicle refused to stop.

The Infiniti got onto eastbound Interstate 64 heading toward Albemarle County, and the deputy reached out to the Albemarle County Police Department.

ACPD deployed tire deflation devices in an attempt to stop the Infiniti, but the vehicle drove over the devices and continued down Dudley Mountain Road.

The Infiniti did slow down and lost several tires damaged by the deflation devices.

Up to this point in the pursuit, two Augusta County deputies were the only law enforcement vehicles involved in the chase.

The Infiniti’s driver eventually lost control and crashed down an embankment at the intersection of Dudley Mountain Road and Red Hill Road.

The suspect, identified as 38-year-old Adam Ryan Martin of Gordonsville, tried to run away from the scene and was chased by an Augusta County deputy.

A female passenger in the Infiniti was taken into custody.

Martin reportedly refused to stop running, and once the deputy got within reach, he allegedly turned around in a “fighting stance.”

The two were involved in a physical altercation, and Martin was arrested on charges of assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, eluding, possession with intent to distribute weapons of terror (fentanyl), possession with intent to distribute Schedule I or II drugs, possession Schedule I or II drugs, and obstruction of justice.

He is also facing charges associated with possession of fentanyl in Fluvanna County.

Martin was taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center for treatment of injuries.

The Virginia State Police then investigated the incident, and on Nov. 22, got warrants against Sergeant William Mikolay of the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office.

He is facing charges of felony malicious wounding and misdemeanor assault and battery.

Mikolay was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond and is on paid administrative leave while this case is pending trial.

Martin remains in custody and is scheduled to be in court in Albemarle County on Jan. 4.
