Police Chase Ends Painfully for Suspect

Reginald Mooreman should be happy to be alive.

The 20-year-old man was thrown from his car after crashing during a police chase in Richmond County early Monday morning.

According to authorities, the Augusta man was drunk when they tried to pull him over. He also had a outstanding bench warrant. That may be why he led police on a chase down North Leg Road at 1 a.m. Monday.

But the chase ended badly for the suspect. He ran off the road, over-corrected and lost control of the 1993 Toyota Tercel. The vehicle went off the road, struck a fence and hit a ditch that caused the car to overturn, ejecting the 6'3'' suspect onto the road. (Click on drawing above.)

Mr. Mooreman now faces a list of charges as long as his hospital bill:
  • Fleeing & attempting to elude officers
  • Failure to maintain lane
  • DUI
  • Driving while unlicensed
  • Seatbelt violation
  • Reckless driving
He is sitting in the Richmond County Jail this morning -- probably in a lot of pain.
