Fifty-five-year-old Leon Dockery was reported to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Friday night as being under the influence of a known substance at a home in the Marble community.

As deputies were enroute to the residence, they spotted Dockery's vehicle and that's when the chase began.  

Police say Dockery began throwing items from the window of the truck.  

Other patrol cars joined in the chase.

Once stopped, Dockery was arrested and deputies found nearly three pounds of marijuana was found packaged for resale inside of his vehicle.
