Suspect arrested after vehicle pursuit in Tuscaloosa

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA COUNTY - AL -

Tuscaloosa Police have arrested a suspect that was involved in a high speed pursuit with police back in April.  Police say Byron Dwights Sullivan sped away after a TPD Patrol Officer activated his police vehicle lights and sirens to conduct a traffic stop.  The pursuit started at Lurleen Wallace Blvd northbound at 12th Street, continued into west Tuscaloosa and then back to Jack Warner Parkway.  At Jack Warner Parkway and 28th Avenue, police say Sullivan's vehicle sideswiped a TPD Patrol Unit.  Sullivan then turned into a dead end road on 29th Avenue and drove through a fence before leaving the vehicle and jumping a fence into a railroad yard on foot.  Sullivan was later found lying underneath a railcar and was taken into custody.  He was taken to the Tuscaloosa Police Department and then to DCH for self-inflicted injuries to his foot.  Once he is released, Sullivan will be taken to Tuscaloosa County Jail pending at $4,500 bond.  The 25 year old was issued citations for leaving the scene of an accident and driving while having a suspended driver's license.  He faces a list of charges including reckless endangerment, 2nd degree unlawful possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, attempting to elude police, giving false name and resisting arrest.

    Police in Gadsden are trying to return hundreds of stolen items to their rightful owners. Captain Paul Cody said officers bust a large fencing operation this week. Joe Pearl, 75, is the suspect in the case. It took a long time to sort through and document a very wide range of stolen property. "We've collected a lot of stuff," Cody said. "Toilet paper. We have non-firearms related weapons, we have karaoke machines, musical instruments, car stereos, underwear."More >>
