Marshall County authorities search for man accused of shooting while being chased
MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. – Deputies with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office are looking for Wesley Brenden Speegle, 24, of Joppa. They say he’s wanted for a multitude of charges, including reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and attempting to elude.
The charges stem from an incident early Monday morning. Investigators say they tried to stop a vehicle around 2:00 a.m. for a traffic violation. But the driver, who investigators have identified as Speegle, didn’t stop. Instead, he led deputies on a chase, during which gunshots were fired from the vehicle.
The chase continued into Morgan County and ended in the area of Double S Mountain. Deputies say the driver then ran into a corn field. Deputies and K-9s assisted in the search. More shots were fired in the area during the search.
Deputies called off the ground search around 5:00 a.m. Monday.
