Rankin Chase Ends in Madison County

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement.

Monday around 12:20 p.m. a Rankin County Interstate Interdiction Task Force Officer attempted to stop a white Kia with Louisiana license plates for a traffic offense.

The vehicle failed to stop and continued at normal speed west bound on I-20. Additional units from Rankin SO and Brandon PD were positioned around the east Brandon exit to assist in the traffic stop. When the driver, later identified as Henry W. MCCOY, spotted the other law enforcement officers, he accelerated and began to attempt to evade law enforcement.

While in Brandon, MCCOY, began aggressively changing lanes, riding on the shoulder of the road, all in an attempt to evade law enforcement. Pearl PD also joined the pursuit as MCCOY passed through their city.

The pursuit was official terminated once MCCOY reached the Rankin / Hinds County line on I-55. Rankin SO and Brandon PD continued to shadow MCCOY at a distance until MCCOY entered into Madison County.

Madison PD had already taken position on I-55 waiting for MCCOY to enter their jurisdiction. Once Madison PD engaged MCCOY, Rankin SO, Brandon PD and Madison SO joined them. Madison PD deployed spike strips at two different locations and successfully deflated tires on MCCOY’s Kia at both locations.

Once MCCOY was riding on rims, he was forced to slow his speed to maintain control. Near the Gluckstadt exit, MCCOY’s speed was low enough and traffic had cleared where MCCOY could be forced off the roadway. MCCOY immediately exited his vehicle, raised his hands and laid on the ground. He was taken into custody without further incident.

MCCOY stated he was running because he was scared. Drug paraphernalia was recovered on scene.

MCCOY will be charged with felony evasion and held in the Rankin County Jail pending his initial appearance before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel. A NCIC check of MCCOY shows he has a warrant out of Louisiana for motor vehicle theft.

Kingfish note: There was a Louisiana warrant for his arrest on a charge of motor vehicle theft. 


Favors Transparency In Reports.. said...

I hate these redacted police reports. Completely left out this part, "Subject McCoy was discovered to have shit his pants. The Department of Environmental Quality was called in to deal with that issue."

Why was the pursuit terminated at the Hinds / Madison line, then "restarted" when the suspect entered the City of Madison?

If You Can't Do the Time... said...

The "I was scared" 'defense' is what they learn in jail from other low-lifes.

It doesn't work, but it's like an urban legend.

too bad Stokes wasn't sitting on the side of I-55 - He could have thrown a rock at them.

Please keep these thugs out of Jackson. Seems like these bedroom communities are becoming hotbeds for thugs

5:43. Surely you know the answer to that! No Rankin/Madison Leo is gonna run the chance of being presented to a Hinds County GJ.

I hope there is similar coordination with Warren and Simpson Counties!

The LEOs in Madison dam near caused multiple accidents setting up, driving down the interstate the wrong way, as usual this was overkill.

There's never been a problem continuing a chase by HCSO. But Jackson has always had a problem with it. JPD would have had jurisdiction at the point they entered Hinds County and I'm sure Rankin SO didn't think it was worth the effort to engage them. On the other side of the county, HCSO would have engaged. Trust me.

Long way to follow from Rankin to Madison.
Guess this means JPD either wasn't asled to assist or JPD never responded when asked to assist

Curious why Ridgeland wasn't in on it?

At the end of the day, bring your tail to Madison and Rankin and you will go to jail. No blessings up here...

9:42...ding release leaves a lot to the imagination doesn't it? Somebody is just appealing to a certain base without regard for telling the full story.

Ridgeland PD Chief was involved in photo ops with the mayor. Wait, or was he at the ribbon cutting for the new JC Penney Parking Lot with Alan Hart?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
