At approximately 1 pm Friday an off-duty Washington County deputy notified Walton County Sheriff’s Office he had observed Tony Ray Dorsey in Walton County driving westbound on Cowford Road.
Dorsey had an active order for bond revocation on original charges of aggravated battery on LEO, fleeing and eluding, as well as other charges.
