A driver and their three passengers were arrested Friday after a car chase on Interstate 20 ended in a crash.
According to DeKalb County Police, the four were driving a stolen Chevrolet Camaro that had been tracked entering Rockdale County. When troopers tried to stop the vehicle, it sped off.
A trooper performed what is called a PIT maneuver or Precision Immobilization Technique. It is a pursuit tactic the police use to force a fleeing car to quickly turn sideways to cause the driver to lose control and stop. As a result of this technique the vehicle hit the median wall and came to a stop. No one was injured.
The three passengers of the vehicle were identified as Demetrius Lanier, Pamela Blue, and Quietin Davenport. They were taken to jail after the crash. The driver of the Camaro, Bryan Payne, jumped over the median wall and ran into a Conyers industrial park.
Payne was found later thanks to a multi-agency manhunt. He was found hiding on top of a school bus and was arrested and taken to jail.
Georgia State Patrol said the Camaro had been reported stolen in Clayton County. All four suspects were turned over to DeKalb County Police. The suspects will need to hire the best Dekalb County DUI Lawyers.
