HOUSTON CO., AL (WSFA) - The suspect in a high speed chase with Houston County Sheriff's deputies Tuesday is now identified as 30-year-old Ryan Ricardo Green, of Tallahassee.

Deputies attempted to stop Green on Saunders Road, but he took off at a high rate of speed. Green ran a red light at the intersection of Inez Rd. and Hodgesville Rd, at which time he hit another vehicle.

Authorities quickly took the suspect into custody and charged him with first degree assault and felony fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement. Green could face additional charges.

He's being held at the Houston County Jail on a $45,000 bond.

Despite having a Florida address, investigators say Green was living in Dothan.
