Police chase starts in Flint after drive by shooting

By Tanya Terry

A police chase on Feb. 20 started in Flint around 6 p.m. and ended in Grand Blanc Township.

The driver of the vehicle was wanted because he was connected to a drive by shooting that occurred just hours before he was spotted and the chase began.

About nine cars began chasing the white car the suspect was in.

The chase began near the intersection of Saginaw and Pierson Road. The suspect went Southbound on 475, exited 475, drove West on Hill Road to Fenton and then East on Maple. The suspect then got out of the car and ran North through the field.

Eventually, the man was caught and arrested on several outstanding felony warrants out of multiple counties in Michigan.

After four deaths occurred in the city because of high-speed pursuits such as this, the 2015 resolution which supported passing the State Police Motor Pursuit Policy Act was passed. The policy was amended to support a chase for the safety of the public.

During this pursuit, there were no injuries, and the suspect is currently lodged in jail.
