Coweta County, GA – Drunk Driving Suspect Leads Deputies on a High-Speed Chase

Coweta County, Georgia (February 16, 2023) – Coweta County deputies say a drunk driver led them on a high-speed chase during rush hour on Wednesday evening.

It began at State Road 34 and Fischer Road, near one of Coweta County’s busiest intersections. Deputies say a 22 year old male, was driving at more than 80 mph in a 55 mph zone. According to witnesses, he had no intention of stopping.

This was one of three police pursuits on a busy night in Coweta County. According to deputies, the man drove down Fischer Road at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour during the evening rush hour.

Deputies said the body cam shows the driver forcing cars out of the way as the pursuit continued down Fischer Road toward Northgate High School.

The video ends with his car crashing into a ditch. The video then shows the foot chase that led to the driver’s arrest after he was tasered by the deputy.

According to deputies, he was charged with felony fleeing, DUI, failure to maintain lane, reckless driving, crossing the double yellow line, and failure to report an accident that he allegedly caused during the pursuit.


I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.


Drunk Driving Accidents in Georgia

Every year, more than 10,000 people are killed in traffic accidents as a result of drunk driving, and fatal drunk driving accidents occur at alarming rates throughout the state of Georgia.

Driving under the influence of alcohol endangers the lives of not only the driver, but everyone else on the road way.

A person is almost always held fully accountable for any damages and injuries they caused to other people as a result of their actions when they get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol.

Accident victims who have been injured as a result of a drunk driver have the option of hiring legal counsel to help them pursue financial compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle damage, and emotional distress.

If a drunk driver was responsible for the death of someone you care about, you should hire a Wrongful Death Attorney to help you file a claim against the negligent driver.

Although no amount of money can bring a lost loved one back, the attorneys at our firm can help you file a claim for financial compensation to help ease the burden of the increased expenses that come with a death in the family.

Driving under the influence of alcohol is an example of reckless behavior that persists despite the existence of laws designed to discourage it. If someone you care about is killed in an accident caused by drunk driving, you do not have to go through the legal process on your own.

A lawyer who specializes in cases involving drunk driving accidents can handle everything for you.
