    You really have to give credit to those Morgan County Deputies. They always get those guys with outstanding warrants with whatever means it takes – i.e. shoot ’em, wreck ’em etc. Keep up the great work.

      Nor can you blame the driver of the car. The cop was speeding on his way to a call understandably. It was at 1:00 in the afternoon, the blue lights aren’t near as visible as they normally are.
