The Georgia State Patrol and Cowley County Deputies were involved in a high-speed chase on I-85 over the weekend. The driver, identified as Morrow, was wanted by Cowen County Deputies. When they attempted to pull him over, he fled, reaching speeds over 150 mph. Drugs and a weapon were later found in his car, including 31 individually packaged bags of marijuana labeled as 3.5 grams each and 20 grams of shrooms. Davis, the driver’s 21-year-old son, was also in the car.
During the chase, Morrow’s car was seen passing other drivers on the shoulder of the freeway, displaying extremely reckless behavior. The pursuit went off the highway and onto rural roads in the south end of Coweta County, with speeds still exceeding 100 mph. Eventually, the chase returned to the interstate, where the Georgia State Patrol joined the pursuit.
At speeds over 100 mph, a trooper performed a PIT maneuver, causing the suspect’s car to crash into a wall. Both Morrow and his son were able to crawl out of the wreckage. Morrow now faces charges of substance possession, possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime, fleeing and attempting to elude, speeding, reckless driving, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. His son is charged with possession of scheduled one THC oil.
