An April 11 police pursuit ended after the suspect and three officers sustained damage to their vehicles.
According to a Barrow County sheriff’s incident report, the suspect fled from a license check at the intersection of East Broad Street and North Broad Street early Sunday morning.
The suspect drove on several Winder area streets, including a subdivision, while trying to elude police vehicles that were chasing him.
Law enforcement officials from the Winder Police Department, the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia State Patrol contacted the Braselton Police Department for assistance as a vehicle pursuit neared the Braselton city limits.
Two Braselton officers deployed a tire deflation device commonly known as stop sticks at the intersection of Ga. Hwy. 211 and Ga. Hwy. 124 in an attempt to stop the fleeing vehicle. The vehicle, which a Braselton officer estimated was traveling approximately 75 mph at the time it struck the stop sticks, was brought to a halt but damaged the tire deflation device in the process.
The officer was subsequently unable to lower the stop sticks which were then struck by three of the pursuing officers.
None of the officers were injured and were able to bring their vehicles safely to a stop.
The Barrow County Sheriff’s Office reported that the suspect, Jesus Garcia Delgado, 20, of 280 Natchez Circle in Winder, was arrested on multiple charges including obstruction and fleeing and attempting to elude.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, Winder police initiated the pursuit. A spokesperson for Winder PD said an incident report would be available for release on Thursday.
