A man who was pursued by Smyrna Police this past April will soon be in court to face a myriad of charges.
Smyrna Police Sgt. Bobby Gibson told News Radio WGNS that police originally made contact with the driver of a silver Nissan Maxima, the man was asked to step out of the vehicle...
Sgt. Gibson told WGNS:
"After making contact with the driver, Ricky A. Bigsby, the officer determined Bigsby did not have a license and prepared to place Bigsby in custody. Bigsby jerked away from the officer, re-entered his vehicle and sped away on Lee Victory Pkwy, toward I-24."
The officer attempted to catch up to the evading vehicle and located it on One Mile Lane at Peebles Drive. The vehicle had crashed in a ditch and the driver fled on foot.
39-Year old Bigsby was eventually arrested for:
- Resisting Arrest
- Evading Arrest
- Driving on a Revoked License
- Simple Possession of Marijuana
- Felony Possession of Cocaine for Resale
- Possession of a Weapon by a Felon
- Sale of Cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school zone
- Attempted Sale of Cocaine
Bigsby is due in court to file a plea on August 25, 2015.
