Mugshot of the Day: Javonist Gant
Javonist Gant, 19, of Augusta, was arrested Wednesday by Richmond County authorities for fleeing/attempting to elude officers, speeding, theft by receiving stolen property, criminal attempted felony and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Basically, authorities say he and another man, David Callahan, tried to rob Belair Package Shop on Wednesday night but got spooked and fled without anything. They later caught the attention of a deputy while riding in a stolen car and ended up leading deputies on a high-speed chase reaching speeds over 100 mph. The chase ended in Columbia County with their arrest. A report doesn't indicate how he sustained the injuries to his face.
