A Washington C.H. man is facing multiple charges after a vehicle pursuit Saturday that ended in Greenfield.
Last Thursday evening while patrolling the Walmart parking lot, a Washington C.H. Police Department officer passed a dark-colored vehicle that appeared to have no rear license plate, according to reports. As the officer turned around his cruiser, the driver of the vehicle turned off its lights and pulled into a parking spot at the side of Walmart.
“As I was attempting to make contact with the driver, that’s when the vehicle drove off at a high rate of speed through the parking lot with no lights on,” the officer wrote in his report. “I then activated my overhead emergency lights and sirens and pursued the vehicle.”
The vehicle reportedly reached speeds of over 50 mph through the parking lot before turning onto Leesburg Avenue.
As the vehicle traveled east on Leesburg Avenue, it reached speeds of over 80 mph and went left of center, reports said. The vehicle turned onto Highland Avenue and passed vehicles at a high rate of speed. The vehicle continued onto S.R. 41 south into Fayette County at speeds of over 100 mph before turning onto Flakes Ford Road.
Once the vehicle was on Flakes Ford Road and approaching S.R. 753, it swerved at a Fayette County Sheriff’s Office cruiser and then turned onto S.R. 753.
The pursuit finally ended in the village of Greenfield once Greenfield Police Department officers deployed spikes that deflated the fleeing vehicle’s tires.
The driver, identified as 18-year-old Braydonlee O.R. Brill, of 1286 Flakes Ford Road, was arrested and charged with third-degree felony failure to comply. He was also issued citations for no operator’s license and an expired registration. He was then transported to the Fayette County Jail without further incident.
