"After 60 minutes of flight time, Kingsbury was over 4,000 feet offshore and visual contact was lost", Surf City Police said in a statement, according to the Charlotte Observer.

In a harrowing video shared by authorities, a man who was reportedly being pursued by police and swam out to sea to evade arrest found himself being stalked by a shark in the process.

A man in North Carolina tried to elude police by running into the ocean and swimming away.

Police say they found drugs in the auto. Kingsbury jumped into the ocean and began swimming away, leading to an hours-long standoff, officials said.

On Wednesday afternoon at around 4:15 p.m., Surf City police officers stopped 20-year-old Zachary Kingsbury.

Police sent a drone out to check his whereabouts after he'd been swimming for more than an hour and saw from the footage he was dangerously close to some sharks. Police deployed a drone and were able to track Kingsbury for some time. The drone eventually ran out of batteries, prompting police to call in the Coast Guard and the North Topsail Beach Police, since he was swimming toward North Topsail.

Kingsbury was placed under arrest and is being held at Pender County Jail.

"From there it turned from chasing someone into a rescue mission, because they thought there might be a dead body", said Kingsbury.

Kingsbury was charged with resisting arrest, obstructing an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana of up to a half an ounce, according to the Observer.
