Wanted Man is Apprehended After Leading ISP Troopers on a 12 Minute Vehicle Pursuit

December 28, 2019

ISP_logo_1At 11:10 pm on December 26, ISP Trooper Derek Rine was patrolling in Fulton County when he observed a white 2011 Jeep Patriot driving northbound on CR 850 W at a high rate of speed.  Trooper Rine observed the Jeep turn onto CR 600 N without coming to a stop at the stop sign.  Trooper Rine positioned himself behind the Jeep and activated his emergency lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle but the Jeep failed to stop.  The Jeep continued travelling on numerous county and local roads and through residential yards running several stop signs and disregarding traffic laws before coming to a stop approximately 12 minutes later in the area of Virginia St and Old SR 17.

The driver then fled on foot through a wooded area but wasn’t fast enough as he was apprehended by officers within two minutes without further incident.  The male subject was identified as 36 year old Brandon King of Rochester.  He was found to be wanted on arrest warrants out of Fulton and Marshall Counties.  Mr. King was transported to the Fulton County Jail on multiple charges resulting from the vehicle pursuit as well as the charges from his arrest warrants.

Mr. King’s charges are as follows: Resisting Law Enforcement – Vehicle (Level 6 Felony); Resisting Law Enforcement – On Foot (A Misdemeanor); Possession of Marijuana (B Misdemeanor); Reckless Driving (C Misdemeanor); Marshall County Warrants for Burglary and Failure to Appear and a Fulton County Warrant for Possession of Marijuana

Trooper Rine was assisted by deputies from the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department and ISP Trooper Andrew Baldwin.

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
