On Wednesday, Forsyth County Sheriff's Office (FCSO) deputies arrested a suspect who led them on a dangerous, high-speed police chase two nights in a row.
The first night deputies let the driver go in order to avoid a potentially dangerous situation to other drivers on the road. However, it wasn't long, less than a day in fact, when they saw the same car a second time. According to a Facebook post by the FCSO, deputies were waiting for his return. They had already identified him as 28-year-old Jeremy Deshun Morris of Atlanta and attained warrants for his arrest. “Mr. Morris made the unwise decision to return to the scene of the crime (he really did drive right back to the same area) for round #2. This time, FCSO was waiting,” says the post.
Morris fled again, a second time, leading the deputies on another high-speed police chase, this time across medians and at one point even going the wrong way on the road. A video from the dashcam of the patrol cars was posted on the Facebook page and even shows him trying to hit one of the deputy’s vehicles.
After some time, the car spun-out on GA-400, and he was quickly surrounded by vehicles from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
The Facebook post says that no one was injured in the pursuit. "Another great job by our FCSO Deputies, including South Precinct, Crime Reduction Unit, Traffic Unit, and K-9 unit. One suspect is now in jail, and no citizens, deputies, or even suspects were injured. One more for FCSO, our car sustained only a scuff to the push bumper."
Morris was arrested and faces the following charges:
•Fleeing/Attempting to Elude
•Failure to Maintain Insurance
•Driving a Motor Vehicle with a Suspended License
