MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Scottsboro Police have arrested and charged 25-year-old Ahmaad Dakota Beasley and 38-year-old Timothy Jerome Harris after a high speed chase this morning. It started in Scottsboro around 3:45 and ended in Madison County. Charges include third degree theft, attempting to elude a police officer and reckless endangerment.
Officers were first called about a theft on the 24000 block of Highway 72 East and were given a description of the vehicle and suspects.
Scottsboro Police tried to pull over a truck matching that description Thursday morning, but the driver took off. Police tell us speeds reached 100 mph during the chase through Jackson County. The suspects reportedly threw a shotgun from the vehicle that has since been recovered.
Deputies with Jackson County warned Madison County Deputies of the chase, which allowed them to prepare spike strips. The driver stopped just west of Gurley.
The men are being transferred to the Jackson County Jail with no bond set at this time.
