HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — The Huntsville Police Department (HPD) says a driver who was involved in a chase was taken into custody after a single-vehicle wreck.
According to HPD, an officer attempted to stop a vehicle northbound on Memorial Parkway near Martin Road. When the driver, later identified as 53-year-old Corey O’Brien Fuqua, did not stop, HPD said the officer pursued the vehicle.
The officer reportedly terminated the pursuit after losing sight of the vehicle.

He was taken into custody and charged with attempting to elude a police officer, obstruction of governmental operations, and second-degree possession of marijuana. Fuqua also had three violation probation/revocation warrants from the sheriff’s office, according to HPD.
Fuqua is currently being held at the Madison County Jail.
