Just because you have a fast car doesn't mean you have to treat the highway like your own personal racetrack. Apparently 35-year-old Terry Joiner didn't believe this when he took his Dodge Challenger SRT onto the Muskogee Turnpike.

According to Oklahoma High Patrol, Joiner was traveling at a very high rate of speed in his 470 horsepower 6.4-liter V-8 muscle car prompting numerous phone calls to 911. When officers attempted to pull over Joiner, he took off but troopers remained on his tail. Eventually troopers attempted a PIT maneuver, sending Joiner into a grassy median. Unfortunately, Joiner was able to regain control of the Challenger and once again entered the roadway. Soon after getting back onto the highway Joiner collided into the rear of a small SUV and came to a stop. 

By then the Challenger SRT had sustained moderate damage and was unable to continue further. Joiner was taken to the hospital by local emergency medical services and later taken into custody.

http://www.freep.com/story/news/2017/05/31/waterford-police-arrest-suspected-female-stalker-after-wild-chases/360432001/

 

A bizarre case of a female stalking suspect trying to elude police began after midnight Wednesday outside a Waterford drugstore and turned into multiple police chases — including one in which the suspect sped her Dodge Challenger at an officer on foot, then drove off with him clinging to her hood while firing eight rounds at her through the windshield, according to police.

Amazingly, the woman sustained barely more than a scratch — a grazing bullet wound to her elbow — and, when she jerked her late-model Challenger onto a main road, the officer was thrown to the ground as she drove off, a police news release said.

The same officer dashed back to his squad car and resumed pursuit until the woman’s Dodge was blocked by the fencing at a road’s dead-end and she ran away. Waterford police surrounded the area and called on Bloomfield Township police whose tracking dog found her hiding near Oakland County International Airport.

The 34-year-old suspect was being held at the Oakland County Jail after being briefly treated for her flesh wound at a Pontiac hospital, police said. But no further information about her will be released until she has been charged, Waterford police Lt. Scott Good said. The officer who was struck by the Dodge Challenger was treated for minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery, Good said.

The incident began when a 17-year-old Waterford girl came out of a CVS drugstore on Highland Road, Waterford’s busy M-59 commercial strip, “and noticed a suspicious vehicle driving slowly through the lot,” according to the news release from police. Driving it was a woman who eyed the teen and, as she began driving home three miles away, followed her turn by turn, the release said.

The girl parked in her driveway and saw the Dodge drive past only to park in front of a vacant lot next door. The teen entered her house, then watched as the woman got out of her Challenger and began roaming her backyard, at one point walking onto the home’s rear deck, the release said. 

So the teen called her mother, who called police as the female suspect returned to her parked car. A responding officer spotted her and began to approach on foot, only to have the Dodge take off and lead the officer on the initial chase, the release said.

The woman was arrested just over a mile from the Waterford Township police station — and from the Waterford district courthouse.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Metro Police are searching for two car thieves they said fled the scene of a deadly hit and run which killed a scooter driver.

Vernon D. Knight, 48, of Baby Ruth Lane in Nashville was killed along Mt. View Road about 9:10 p.m. Tuesday night.

Police said a Dodge Challenger, that was later found to be stolen from the Nashville International Airport, collided with the scooter which Knight was traveling on.

Knight died at the scene. The Challenger left the roadway and came to rest in a ditch. Police said two young black men, possibly in their late teens, fled on foot from the vehicle.

One man was wearing a white shirt with dark shorts and the other was wearing a black shirt and dark shorts. Police said one of the subjects may have a leg injury.

Witnesses told police that the Dodge Challenger was passing vehicles across the double line and into oncoming traffic prior to the crash.

Waterford Township — Township police have released dash cam video footage of a 34-year-old woman leading officers on a high-speed chase in last week.

In the six-minute video, a suspect, identified as Tiffany Elise Edwards, is seen speeding through a residential area on May 31. Her black Dodge Challenger takes numerous turns and, at one point, travels in reverse down a residential street.

Edwards allegedly ran into an officer on foot, knocking him onto the hood of her car. The officer fired eight rounds into the driver’s compartment and was thrown off on Williams Lake Road. He suffered minor injuries.

Police began their pursuit of Edwards after she was accused of stalking a 17-year-old girl. The teenager told police that shortly after midnight May 31, a woman in a dark Dodge Challenger followed her home a short distance from the CVS drugstore at Crescent Lake and Highland roads.

 

The teenager told her parents and they called township police to report the woman who was in their backyard.

When police arrived, the woman had returned to her vehicle. As they approached, she sped off, police said.

Officers eventually caught Edwards after she abandoned her car on a nearby dead-end street. A tracking dog found her hiding behind a business.

Tiffani Elise Edwards' Instagram photo of a black Dodge Challenger, the same color and make of car used to strike the Waterford Twp. police officer, that she captioned, "My new space ship."

 (Photo: Instagram.com)

Edwards is charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, a 10-year felony; third-degree fleeing a police officer, a five-year felony; and assaulting, resisting and obstructing a police officer, a two-year felony. Bond was set at $50,00 cash.

Edwards is scheduled to return to court June 21 for a preliminary exam.

Odessa police have charged a 23-year-old Odessa man with three counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault after Thursday night’s crash that killed three people, according to a release from the Odessa Police Department.

Based on the facts and circumstances presented during the investigation, the Odessa Police Department Traffic Division obtained five felony warrants for Mark Garrett, who is in custody at this time, according to the report. OPD told the Reporter-Telegram early this morning that alcohol was a factor in the crash

OPD previously reported that around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, police and fire departments responded to a “major crash” in the area of Yukon Road and Toboso Avenue.  The investigation revealed a black 2017 Dodge Challenger followed a white 1995 Chevrolet van west in the 2000 block of East Yukon. Garrett was driving the Dodge Challenger at a high rate of speed when the vehicle struck the van from behind, causing both vehicles to separate and catch on fire, according to OPD. All three occupants of the van died on scene and have been sent to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office to be positively identified.

 

Garrett and all three passengers of the Challenger were transported to Medical Center Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to OPD. Two of the three passengers from the Challenger sustained serious bodily injury as a result of the crash.

http://wkrn.com/2017/06/23/speeding-driver-threatens-neighbors-and-news-2-crew-in-east-nashville/

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – While working a story involving dangerous driving in East Nashville Friday afternoon, things turned threatening for a News 2 crew.

News 2 was in the area pursuing a story about a post on the East Nashville Facebook page concerning a speeding driver.

A video posted to the page showed a white Dodge Challenger speeding through the neighborhood. The car is seen speeding right through a stop sign on Montgomery Avenue. And it wasn’t the first time.

News 2 sent a crew to talk with people who live nearby. Soon after they arrived, so did the man in the white Dodge Challenger, later identified as 22-year-old Alexander Frazier.

“That’s the same car,” confirmed the neighbors. “Yep, that’s him.”

The car sat idling for a moment as neighbors continued to discuss the situation. Frazier rolled his window down and then he took off.

Moments later, the car came back. Again, he sped through the stop sign without slowing down.

Frazier turned around and went back to the stop sign long enough to ask the News 2 team, “Why are you recording me?”

Then he offered a warning: “People get shot doing (expletive) like this.”

After feeling threatened, our crew called police and went inside a home with neighbors.

Outside, Frazier was seen circling the house slowly and appeared to have a gun in his hand before he drove off for good.

Frazier was quickly identified by Metro police and interviewed about the incident.

During his interview with detectives, Metro police reported Frazier disputed he had a gun and claimed he was holding a cellphone.

He was booked into the Metro jail and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond was set at $90,000.

Call it a case of selfie incrimination: A police department in Texas is hoping one robbery suspect’s funny faces will lead to her arrest.

Megan Boulter, 25, is wanted by the Kaufman Police Department on charges of aggravated robbery and child endangerment. The department posted 10 different selfies of Boulter — some showing her different hairstyles and makeup choices, others of her making goofy faces — in hopes of arresting the woman suspected of eluding authorities on July 2.

“Here some more pictures of Boulter with her hair in different styles and colors,” the department posted on Facebook Monday. “She is believed to be hiding out and moving between Kaufman, Van Zandt and Dallas County with the help of a male friend.”

Capt. Edward Black told the Houston Chronicle that Boulter was spotted shoplifting at a Walmart in Kaufman as she shopped with her 5-year-old daughter. Boulter then allegedly tried to run over a loss prevention officer twice with her red 2013 Dodge Challenger before leading police on a 90-mph chase with her daughter in the car.

It wasn’t immediately clear how her male friend assisted her during the getaway.

Black said the cheeky photos have caught people’s eye, but she was still on the lam late Tuesday.

“She’s actually pretty popular in this area,” Black told the Chronicle. “We’re one step behind her. I hope she comes in before she gets anybody or herself hurt.”

WPVI
BRIDGEVILLE, Del. (WPVI) --
The Delaware State Police have arrested a New York man after a road rage incident led to a physical confrontation between the drivers.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jason Reed of Syracuse, New York has been charged with Possession of a Deadly Weapon During the Commission of a Felony (Vehicle), four counts of Reckless Endangering 2nd, Assault 3rd, two counts of Criminal Mischief, two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Malicious Mischief by Motor Vehicle, Disorderly Conduct, and Failure to Remain within a Single Lane.
 

The incident happened around 12 p.m. Sunday on Sussex Highway near Bridgeville.

Police say a 50-year-old Delmar, Delaware man was driving a Dodge Challenger northbound on the highway. Reed was driving a Chrysler Town and Country directly behind the Challenger with his wife and two children in the vehicle.

According to police, Reed became irritated that the Challenger was traveling the speed limit in the left lane.

They say Reed entered into the right lane and began passing the 50-year-old driver when he made an abrupt lane change back into the left lane striking the right front bumper of the Challenger with the left side of his mini-van.

The Delmar man then drove into the center median and came to a stop. Police say Reed also pulled into the median and exited his vehicle to confront the driver of the Challenger.
 

Police say the 50-year-old driver, who is disabled, exited his vehicle using a cane.

Reed, police say, began an argument which turned physical, leading to the two men fighting in the median and causing more damage to the Challenger when the two fell into the side of the car.

The 50-year-old victim was able to separate from the fight after police say he took a tactical advantage over Reed and forced him to the ground prior to Delaware State Police arriving to the scene.

Reed's wife and two children remained in the Chrysler and were uninjured.

The 50-year-old victim suffered minor injuries.
 

Reed was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $40,350 secured bond.

A speeding driver's attempt to elude Wauconda police ended when his car crashed and caught fire Wednesday morning just outside the Volo Auto Museum, authorities said.

Wauconda Police Chief David Wermes said 22-year-old Dakota Eckmann, a Wauconda resident, faces numerous charges, including attempting to flee police and possession of drug paraphernalia, as a result of the chase.

Wermes said the pursuit began about 9 a.m. after one of his officers saw Eckmann driving 84 mph north on Route 12, which is a 55 mph zone. The officer attempted a traffic stop, but Eckmann did not pull over, Wermes said. Instead, he wove in and out of traffic before making a left turn on Volo Village Road, he said.

When the officer turned onto Volo Village Road, Wermes said, he saw Eckmann had crashed into a utility pole near the museum, near routes 12 and 120 in Volo.

Museum photographer Rick Schultz said he heard the end of the chase and took photos of the aftermath.

"We heard the sirens and then there was an orange blur," Schultz said. "When it crashed there wasn't a lot of metal on metal and glass breaking. It was more of a thump when he hit the pole."

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat caught fire after the crash, and the officer rushed in to pull Eckmann from the wreckage, Wermes said. The Wauconda Fire District arrived to put out the fire.

Eckmann was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, and he was later released to police custody.

He's charged with two felony counts of aggravated fleeing a police officer, and single counts of driving more than 21 mph over the speed limit, reckless driving, driving on the shoulder, speeding and possession of drug paraphernalia.

 

  • A 22-year-old Wauconda man is facing multiple charges after he crashed this red Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat into a utility pole outside the Volo Auto Museum Wednesday morning while attempting to flee from a traffic stop, authorities said. He was not seriously injured.

Authorities say a North Platte man led law enforcement on a chase across multiple counties Thursday in a stolen sports car from a car dealership.

North Platte Police first took a report of a stolen green 2017 Dodge Challenger from Janssen Auto Group on Thursday morning. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Newton said officers had a suspect in mind.

Between 2 and 2:15 p.m. CST, the Dodge Challenger was spotted in Grant, heading back toward Lincoln County. Newton said he did not know why the car was heading back toward town.

 

“It stuck out like a sore thumb,” Newton said.

Law enforcement tracked the car down Highway 23 into Lincoln County, although at more than 150 miles an hour, it easily outran law enforcement, Newton said.

As Nebraska State Patrol flew an airplane overhead, the car couldn’t easily get away, Newton said.

At south U.S. Highway 83 and Kaneb Road, the car ran out of gas.

Walterio “Chris” Seabrooks, 26, was arrested on suspicion of felony theft just before 2:40 p.m.

 

“He did not resist at all,” Newton said.

The car had minor damage from the more than 12 hours away from its home. Newton said Seabrooks declined to give a motive or details about what he did with the car while it was in his possession.

Newton said the car was left with a key in it, although those at Janssen did not know why.

HANFORD — After reportedly doing doughnuts in the middle of the street with his car and taking Hanford Police officers on a high-speed chase, 34-year-old Donald Flenoid was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence; but not before crashing into two power poles, according to police officials.

Several transformers blew out near the area as a result of the collision, and officials said Southern California Edison crews and Hanford Fire crews were called to help. Two small fires had to be extinguished and the downed power lines were blocking streets, police said.

It all happened on Wednesday around 9:30 p.m., after Hanford Police officers said they responded to a call of a reckless driver near the area of Irwin Street and Hanford-Armona Road.

 
 

Police said several callers stated a white Dodge Challenger was speeding and doing doughnuts in the middle of the street.

Officers said they located the car near Phillips and Scott streets, but it took off as officers approached it and sped into the opposite lanes of traffic attempting to flee.

Officers said they initiated their emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to get the vehicle to pull over, but the Challenger just kept on going.

After failing to stop at the posted stop sign at Scott and Irwin streets, police said Flenoid accelerated to a high rate of speed going northbound on Irwin Street, with several police cars chasing him.

Because he was going so fast, police said Flenoid lost control of his car near Douty and Lang streets and crashed into two Southern California Edison power poles, sheering both poles in half.

 
 

With the car stuck in the middle of the road, officers said they were able to get Flenoid out of the vehicle and arrest him.

Officials said Flenoid sustained injuries from the collision and was transported to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno for his injuries. Police said he was found to be intoxicated.

Police officials said charges will be submitted to the Kings County District Attorney’s office against Flenoid for felony evading and DUI.
