If you are convicted of fleeing or attempting to elude a Georgia police officer, you will be charged with a misdemeanor. The fine can range from $300 to $5,000. If this is your second conviction within a five-year period, the fine can range from $600 to $5,000. For a third conviction in a five-year period, the fine will increase from $1,000 to $5,000.

 

You can be convicted of a felony if while fleeing or attempting to elude police, you were found guilty of driving faster than ten miles over the posted speed limit. You can also be convicted of a felony if you left the state and/or if any bodily injury was caused during the pursuant. The penalty is one to five years in prison.
