High speed chase ends in wreck, gas leak

A Pike teen led law enforcement officers from multiple jurisdictions on an early morning high speed chase Dec. 29 that ended in a crash in downtown Barnesville. Christopher Blake Ard, 17, of 637 Hood Rd. in Concord first drew the attention of deputies in Butts County. He failed to stop and a chase ensued in which he led officers into downtown Barnesville on Hwy. 36. The chase ended just after 3:30 a.m. when Ard hit a building and careened into a gas main in Market Street Alley, severing it. He was returned to the Butts County detention center and faces multiple charges.
