Police say Daniel Ray Winters, 29, supplied Mabe with a vehicle he used to avoid arrest during a three-day manhunt.

When he was spotted at a Mountain City fast food restaurant, Johnson County deputies say Mabe led them on a high-speed chase on State Route 91, shooting at cruisers and threatening officers with firearms.

Winters was booked into the Johnson County jail and was placed under a $50,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.
