MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Moultrie man fled from a traffic stop July 14, but he didn’t get far.

Colquitt County Sheriff’s Investigator Ronald Jordan pulled over a 2017 Nissan Altima on Highway 37 East near Home Depot at 9:34 p.m., he said in his incident report. Jordan said the car was failing to stay in its lane and ran off the road a couple of times.

Once the car was pulled over, Jordan walked up and asked the driver to roll down his window. The driver drove away instead and ran the red light at Highway 37 and Veterans Parkway.

Jordan said the car apparently hit the curb on the roundabout at Fourth Avenue Northeast and Rowland Drive. It was damaged, and the driver bailed out near Clay Street. He ran from the scene but was caught by Moultrie police.

Quincy Quinn Thornton, 39, 701 Sixth St. S.E., was charged with DUI, failure to drive in a single lane, fleeing and attempting to elude an officer, reckless driving and open container.
