Nebo man faces multiple charges after car and foot chase Wednesday

Deputy Steven McPeters of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Randall Keith Webb, 43, of 59 Bethamy Drive in Nebo, with fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving to endanger, failure to stop for a red light, lane change violation, expired registration, failure to yield at a left turn, unsafe tires, driving on a revoked license and no liability insurance.
At approximately 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, McPeters responded to a call of a suspicious male looking at an abandoned vehicle on the side of Fairview Road.
As McPeters approached, the man, later identified as Webb, ran to a nearby Saturn SUV that he had driven to that location. He jumped in the Saturn and fled at a high rate of speed from Fairview Road to Jacktown Road to N.C. 226 and back to Fairview, where he pulled into a gravel area behind Fairview Corner Market and ran behind the Waffle House.
After a brief search of the area by authorities with the Sheriff’s Office, Marion Police Department, N.C. Highway Patrol and N.C. DMV, Webb was apprehended coming out of the woods at 206 Fairview Road.
