A Sibley man riding an all-terrain vehicle led deputies on a chase Friday night.

Deputies Terry Brown and Billy Raspberry were patrolling along Saltworks Road when a man driving an ATV passed them driving the opposite direction.

When the deputies turned around and activated their emergency lights, the driver, Scott Mangrum, 42, of the 100 block of Noles Landing in Sibley, began to accelerate and reached speeds of near 85 mph, according to the arrest affidavit.

Mangrum then led deputies along Saltworks Road onto Sandpit Road before leaving the roadway and going down a dirt road into the woods, the report said.
