Rankin Chase Ends at Airport

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement yesterday.

Monday June 10, 2019 around 2:30 p.m., Rankin County Interdiction Task Force Officer Picou was nearly struck by a Ford pickup truck traveling west on I-20 near Pelahatchie. Deputy Picou attempted to stop the vehicle in Pelahatchie to no avail.

The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Lance Michael CLARK, began to evade Deputy Picou in a reckless and felonious manner. When CLARK passed Deputy Picou, he made what appeared to be a deliberate attempt to strike Deputy Picou’s marked patrol vehicle.

Deputy Picou was joined by other Rankin County Deputies as well as Officers from Pearl PD, and Richland PD while on I-20. CLARK exited I-20 onto MS HWY 475, crossed over HWY 80 and drove onto Jackson International Airport property. CLARK continued to evade officers and drove onto the upper level of the airport where Airport Police joined and assisted in effecting an arrest.

CLARK was ordered from the vehicle and told to lie on the ground. Instead of complying with those commands, he began swear at law enforcement officers. CLARK was quickly subdued and taken into custody without further incident.

CLARK and his passenger were taken to the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office for questioning. The passenger was found to be an immediate family member of CLARK. Based on their interview, and statements made by family, it appears CLARK may have been suffering from a mental episode. CLARK made statements to his passenger just prior to attempting to hit Deputy Picou that would support him not thinking clearly. The passenger was released from the Sheriff’s Office without charges.

CLARK is charged with felony evasion was well as various misdemeanor traffic violations. He will be held without bond until he has his initial appearance in Rankin County Court. CLARK will be required to have mental assessment prior to being released from jail.

Kingfish note: I dunno, attempting to hit Picou might actually be a form of sanity ((ducking)).

Don't these officers know that Jackson International Airport (yes, the correct name of the facility) is legally Jackson, MS and therefore they are not allowed to chase fleeing criminals onto the property? Kenny will be have a news conference from the airport very soon.

Since that location is an interstate highway with two lanes in each direction, I'm trying to understand how they passed each other and (almost ran the officer off the road). Maybe the 'felonious fleer' was headed in the same direction as Picou and overtook the officer's vehicle.

This sounds like a lot of fun for a witness to watch.

Perhaps he saw your footage of the entire trigger happy RCSO mag dumping into that deranged dude in Pelahatchie and thought to himself...

What do we say to death? Not today!

??? "Trigger happy RCSO " ????

This fool should have been well ventilated long before he made it to the airport. Of course, bleeding hearts like 2:52 are all anti-police until some shit eater like this takes out one of his family members.

I'm not a bleeding heart and I saw the footage that Kingfish posted of the standoff that 2:52 is referring too The amount of lead that the RCSO put into that man's corpse was excessive.

Sorry you got triggered.

What seems like a lot of lead on the back end may not seem so on the front end when that is your skin out there confronting the violent individual. I will never judge a law man legally neutralizing a threat until I put myself out there to protect you fools which I never intend to do.

West bound and down said...

Comin' round the bend out of Morton it's kind of a blind curve to the right heading west just before you hit The Straights of Pelahatchie, and the man is always gonna be right there on the right hand shoulder, waitin' on ya.

If I was a front seat passenger in a vehicle and I thought the driver was suffering from a mental episode, I would do something that seems to elude otherwise reasonable thinking passengers, I would reach over and turn off the key switch.

In Rankin County, they’ll hit you with a felony fleeing charge for pulling out of the Walmart too fast.

Excessive? Trigger happy? What pussy comments.

A Rankin Sheriff Deputy or a Rankin Senator, both win the day at the Jackson Airport.

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.
