Chase Ends in Flowood

 Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement. 

On September 28, just after 7:00 p.m., a Rankin County deputy observed a UHAUL moving truck traveling on Highway 80 in Pearl.  The deputy attempted to stop the truck for a traffic violation.  Upon seeing the deputy activate his lights, the driver of the truck accelerated and began driving more aggressive in an attempt to evade law enforcement. 

 The driver of the truck, later identified as JACKY A BLACKWOOD, struck another vehicle as he continued from Pearl to Flowood. Officers from Pearl Police Department as well as Flowood Police Department assisted in the chase as BLACKWOOD continued through Flowood towards the Reservoir area.  While on Spillway Rd., other deputies assisting with the pursuit were able to successfully deploy spike strips in an attempt to bring the pursuit to an end.  BLACKWOOD then got back on Highway 25 heading south back towards Flowood.  On Highway 25 just south of the Hugh Ward Blvd., BLACKWOOD lost control of the truck and flipped the vehicle on its side.  

BLACKWOOD and his passenger, VALERIE SHEPARD, were both taken into custody and taken to the Rankin County Jail.  Both are charged with felony fleeing. District Attorney Bubba Bramlett will bring both before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an initial appearance.  BLACKWOOD also has warrants out of South Carolina.  Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey would like to thank the local law enforcement agencies for their assistance in this matter.

" District Attorney Bubba Bramlett will bring both before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an initial appearance." What the hell type of traffic violation and leaving the scene of an accident requires the DA's involvement? Understand he may go through extradition for his foreign warrant(s) but if they aren't felonies, SC may not want to spend the money to come and get him. Not that I'm bitching, I had a friend ask me.

Also saw the chase. Wondering what the outstanding warrants were for and why the driver chose to flee. Also surprising that law enforcement would engage in such a long, drawn out pursuit over a "traffic violation." It is fortunate that no one else was hurt.

When a routine traffic violation becomes felony fleeing. To be continued...

A lot of things you can haul in one of those things. Nuclear warhead, dope, sex slaves, missing children, couch, love seat.......

What U haulin' said...

This same bunch came through Flowood last week. They got pulled over and asked what you haulin. The driver said Penguins. So they rolled up the door to find 52 flappin' penguins. The officer told them in this heat they needed to get those Penguins to the Zoo, pronto, and let them go on their way.

Now a week later, after the crash, they roll up the door to find 52 flappin' Penguins. The officer says to them "I thought I told you to take them Penguins to the Zoo last week?!"

The driver says "yeah, well, they had such a good time at the Zoo we're going to the beach this week!"

12:59 here. I was wondering why FloPo didn’t speed past the UHaul and block it in. I thought the police were exercises too much restraint. But perhaps I’ve watched too much TV.

Were the LEOs confused that the vehicle wasn't traveling towards Jackson?

I'm the only one commenting who did not witness this 'chase', but, if this 'chase' was on spillway road, why the hell could not ten or more police vehicle simply block the roadway?

I'm surprised Sigman's boys weren't activated since a truck that size is illegal on the spillway.

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.
