According to Macon County Sheriff Robbie Holland, the suspect was driving a stolen 2000 Lincoln Town Car. The suspect, Jeffrey Bryant Davis of Williamston, S.C., caused a MCSO's Deputy to drive his patrol car into an embankment in front of Huddle House in order to avoid hitting an innocent motorist.
